Hunting for carotenoid-derived retrograde signals that regulate plastid development

Hou, Xin


In plants, carotenoids are essential for photosynthesis and photoprotection. However, carotenoids are not the end-products of the pathway: apocarotenoids are produced by carotenoid cleavage dioxygenases (CCDs) or non-enzymatic processes. Apocarotenoids are more soluble or volatile than carotenoids, but they are not simply breakdown products as there can be modifications post cleavage and functions include hormones, volatiles or signals. Evidence is emerging...[Show more]
