Flavobacterium multivorum, a non-fermenting Gram-negative bacteria, normally produces zeaxanthin (3R, 3′ R-β, β-carotene-3, 3′ diol) as its main carotenoid. The effect of supplementation of various inorganic salts and urea on the growth, total carotenoid production, and proportion of β-carotene (β, β-carotene), β-cryptoxanthin (β, β-caroten-3-ol), and zeaxanthin produced by F. multivorum was investigated. Urea and several salts, such as calcium chloride, ammonium chloride, lithium chloride, and… Expand

Chapter 1 Carotenoid Distribution in Nature
Carotenoids are naturally occurring red, orange and yellow pigments that are synthesized by plants and some microorganisms and fulfill many important physiological functions. This chapter describesExpand
Carotenoid Distribution in Nature.
TLDR
This chapter describes the distribution of carotenoid in microorganisms, including bacteria, archaea, microalgae, filamentous fungi and yeasts, and focuses on their functional aspects and applications, such as their nutritional value, their benefits for human and animal health and their potential protection against free radicals.

Bioproduction of carotenoid compounds using two-phase olive mill waste as the substrate.
Abstract The olive oil production process by the two-phase centrifugal system generates a waste named “alperujo”, which has a high percentage of water (65%) and contains phenolic compounds. TheseExpand

Production of β-carotene by a mutant of Rhodotorula glutinis
TLDR
Out of 2,051 isolates screened, the yellow coloured mutant 32 produced 120-fold more β-carotene than the parent culture in 36 h, which was 82% (w/w) of the total carotenoid content. Expand
β-Carotene producing mutants of Phaffia rhodozyma
TLDR
The identification of the corresponding carotenoid compounds revealed the occurrence of β-carotene-accumulating strains, phytoene- Accumulate strains, and strains lacking any carOTenoid compound, all of which appear very promising for biotechnological production of natural β- carotene. Expand

Biosynthesis of Carotenoids in Brevibacterium sp. KY-4313
TLDR
It was concluded that cyclization can take place at either the neurosporene or lycopene level in Brevibacterium sp. Expand
Inhibition of carotenoid synthesis in Micrococcus roseus.
TLDR
Carotenoid cyclization in M. roseus does not involve neurosporene or lycopene and must occur early in carotene biosynthesis, prior to the formation of beta-zeacarotene, zeta-Carotene is proposed as the cyclization substrate and beta-Zeta-carotene as the substrate for oxygen insertion. Expand

Production of beta-carotene by a Rhodotorula glutinis mutant in sea water medium.
TLDR
Mutant 32, derived from Rhodotorula glutinis NCIM 3353 produced 76-fold more beta-carotene than the parent strain and 83 +/- 5% carotenoids could be extracted from the cells without any mechanical disintegration when grown in seawater medium at pH 6.0. Expand
Influence of carbon and nitrogen sources on Flavobacteriumgrowth and zeaxanthin biosynthesis
TLDR
The results suggest that Flavobacterium sp utilizes asparagine primarily as a nitrogen source for growth and production of zeaxanthin. Expand
Metabolic engineering for the production of carotenoids in non-carotenogenic bacteria and yeasts.
TLDR
It has been observed in the yeasts S. cerevisiae and C. utilis carrying the lycopene biosynthesis genes that ergosterol content is decreased by 10 and 35%, respectively, and it is likely that the carbon flux for the ergosterols biosynthesis has been partially directed from farnesyl pyrophosphate to a new pathway for the lyCopenoid biosynthesis.
