AtPDS overexpression in tomato: Exposing unique patterns of carotenoid self-regulation and an alternative strategy for the enhancement of fruit carotenoid content

McQuinn, Ryan; Wong, Breanna; Giovannoni, James J


The regulation of plant carotenogenesis is an active research area for both biological discovery and practical implementation. In tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), we demonstrate additional bottlenecks exist in the poly-cis-transformation of phytoene to lycopene in the context of ripening-induced PSY1 expression and activity and reveal phytoene desaturase (PDS), as a target for manipulation towards elevated lycopene content in maturing tomato fruit. Overexpression of Arabidopsis PDS, AtPDS,...[Show more]
