Volatile apocarotenoid biosynthesis and carotenoid catabolism in Arabidopsis thaliana

Rivers, John Yates


Carotenoids are essential for plant photosynthesis. But, the story doesn’t end there: volatile apocarotenoids, carotenoid oxidative cleavage products, are important plant fragrances and semiochemicals, and some are believed to be so-called ‘apocarotenoid signals’ (ACS), regulating plant processes. From in vitro experiments, apocarotenoids are known to be formed either by carotenoid cleavage dioxygenases (CCDs) or non-enzymatic oxidation. But, in planta...[Show more]
