Potential implications for epigenetic regulation of carotenoid biosynthesis during root and shoot development

Cazzonelli, Christopher; Yin, Kuide; Pogson, Barry


Major regulators of carotenoid biosynthesis have remained rather elusive even though the flux through the branch in the carotenoid pathway can affect plant development in response to environmental stimuli, such as light. Our recent investigations demonstrated that the production of the most abundant carotenoid in plants, lutein, is regulated by carotenoid isomerase (CRTISO) activity at a rate-limiting step of this branch point in carotenoid biosynthesis. CRTISO is required to isomerase...[Show more]
