Carotenogenesis has been extensively studied in fruits and flower petals. Transcriptional regulation is thought to be the major factor in carotenoid accumulation in these organs. However, little is known about regulation in root organs. The root carotenoid content of carrot germplasm varies widely. The present study was conducted to investigate… CONTINUE READING
