Tocochromanols are an important group of plastidic lipophilic antioxidants that form an essential part of human diet and play important functions in photosynthetic organisms by protecting them from photo-oxidation, lipid peroxidation and membrane damage. Molecular genetics and genomics-based approaches have revealed the genes required for synthesis of these compounds in model organisms like rice, Arabidopsis and Synechocystis. To create a positive impact on human nutrition and health, the… CONTINUE READING
