A new gene (carC) involved in the regulation of carotenogenesis in Phycomyces


Six independent mutants of Phycomyces disturbed in the biosynthesis of β-carotene were isolated after treatment of wild type spores with the mutagen 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide. Complementation analysis revealed that all these mutants carry allelic mutations in a new gene called carC. Recombination analysis showed that carC is linked with nicA at a distance of… (More)
