Regulation of Lutein Biosynthesis and Prolamellar Body Formation in Arabidopsis

Cuttriss, Abby; Chubb, Alexandra; Alawady, Ali; Grimm, Bernhard; Pogson, Barry


Carotenoids are critical for photosynthetic function in chloroplasts, and are essential for the formation of the prolamellar body in the etioplasts of dark-grown (etiolated) seedlings. They are also precursors for plant hormones in both types of plastids. Lutein is one of the most abundant carotenoids found in both plastids. In this study we examine the regulation of lutein biosynthesis and investigate the effect of perturbing carotenoid biosynthesis on the formation of the lattice-like...[Show more]
