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… 

Microbial and Microalgal Carotenoids as Colourants and Supplements

General aspects of the production and use of carotenoids as colourants and supplements were discussed in Chapter 4. For several decades, these carotenoids have been produced commercially by chemical

Temperature influences β-carotene production in recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae expressing carotenogenic genes from Phaffia rhodozyma

The influence of temperature on β-carotene biosynthesis is revealed and may be helpful for improving β- carotene production in recombinant S. cerevisiae.

Technological Aspects of β-Carotene Production

The present review is focused on the current technologies for β-carotene production and presents an overview of new tendencies regarding the carotenoids extraction from microbial and vegetal feedstocks, as well as processes for their concentration.

Medium optimization and downstream process design for the augmented yield of β-Carotene using fungi Blakeslea trispora

Purpose β-Carotene is the most appropriate and significant precursor of vitamin A. Synthetic carotene supplements have been known to pose a threat to human health, making natural sources such as the

Redirecting Metabolic Flux towards the Mevalonate Pathway for Enhanced β-Carotene Production in M. circinelloides CBS 277.49

It was concluded that metabolic flux had been successfully redirected towards the mevalonate pathway for enhanced β-carotene production in CBS 277.49.

Chapter 1 Carotenoid Distribution in Nature

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.

Production of β-carotene by a mutant of Rhodotorula glutinis

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.

β-Carotene producing mutants of Phaffia rhodozyma

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.

Biosynthesis of Carotenoids in Brevibacterium sp. KY-4313

It was concluded that cyclization can take place at either the neurosporene or lycopene level in Brevibacterium sp.

Inhibition of carotenoid synthesis in Micrococcus roseus.

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.

Increased β-carotene synthesis in Blakeslea trispora under strong alkaline culture condition

SummaryA high yield of β-carotene, 48 mg/l, was obtained by cultivation of a strain of Blakeslea trispora under a strong alkaline culture condition (pH 10), which was significantly higher than those

Effect of Inhibitors on Zeaxanthin Synthesis in a Flavobacterium

Nicotine inhibited the cyclization reaction in carotenoid biosynthesis in Flavobacterium R1519 as in other organisms; in zeaxanthin biosynthesis cyclization appeared to precede hydroxylation.

Production of beta-carotene by a Rhodotorula glutinis mutant in sea water medium.

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.

Influence of carbon and nitrogen sources on Flavobacteriumgrowth and zeaxanthin biosynthesis

The results suggest that Flavobacterium sp utilizes asparagine primarily as a nitrogen source for growth and production of zeaxanthin.
