Carotenogenic mutants of Corynebacterium glutamicum were analyzed for their carotenoid content. Mutant MV10 accumulated the same carotenoids as the wild-type, decaprenoxanthin, decaprenoxanthin monoglucoside, and (2R,6R,2′R,6′R)-decaprenoxanthin di-(β-D)-glucoside, but in three-fold higher amounts. In addition, decaprenoxanthin diglucoside fatty acid esters and the intermediates nonaprene, 2-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)-ε,ψ-carotene, and sarcinene, 2,2′-bis(3-methyl-2-butenyl)-ε,ε-carotene were… CONTINUE READING
