Inhibition of carotenoid biosynthesis

The inhibition of carotenoid biosynthesis has been studied for some 40 years. The earliest investigations, using compounds which cause the accumulation of less unsaturated carotenoids, particularly

Biosynthesis of aryl carotenoids: Inhibitor studies of chlorobactene biosynthesis in Chlorobium limicola f. thiosulfatophilum

The biosynthesis of the aryl carotenoid, chlorobactene, was examined in the green sulfur bacterium, Chlorobium limicola f. thiosulfatophilum. Nicotine, which was used to inhibit carotenoid

Inhibition of Carotenoid Synthesis in a Mutant of Verticillium albo-atrum

SUMMARY: Verticillium albo-atrum mutant M5·6 which produces phytoene, β- and γ-carotene, neolycopene A, lycopene and neurosporaxanthin was subjected to the effect of the following inhibitors of

Effect of light on carotenoid and riboflavin production by the fungus Cephalosporium diospyri

Carotenoids were produced in the mycelial form of Cephalosporium diospyri only after exposure to light of wavelength < 500 nm, and production occurred in three stages, all of which had an absolute requirement for oxygen.

REDOX DYES AS ARTIFICIAL PHOTORECEPTORS IN LIGHT‐DEPENDENT CAROTENOID SYNTHESIS *

Experiments with methylene blue and red light showed that pigments induced under these conditions are qualitatively the same as those induced with white light, and the dyes were also shown to interfere with the biosynthesis of carotenoids, whereas addition after irradiation caused an increase in pigment production that involves a quantitative change in the more unsaturated components.

By a series of dehydrogenation, cyclization, isomerization, and hydration reactions, various acyclic and alicyclic carotenoids are formed and the characteristics of the enzymes involved are stressed rather than nutritional, functional, or chemical aspects of carOTenoids.
