Investigating the function of carotenoid isomerase-like genes in Arabidopsis

Nisar, Nazia


Carotenoids are essential pigments of the photosynthetic apparatus in plants, algae, and cyanobacteria and are also produced by many bacteria and fungi. They serve indispensable functions in plants providing health benefits for humans and animals. In plants, it was considered that the conversion of C40 carotenoid (isoprenoid molecule/compound) to all-trans lycopene required two desaturases (PDS; phytoene desturase & ZDS; Zeta-carotene desaturase) plus a third distinct enzyme activity, the...[Show more]
