Chromoplast development in ripening bell pepper fruits is characterized by a massive synthesis of carotenoid pigments, resulting in their distinctive red color. We have shown that 95% of these pigments accumulate in chromoplasts in specific lipoprotein fibrils. In addition to carotenoids, purified fibrils contain galactolipids, phospholipids, and a single, 32-kD protein, designated fibrillin, which has antigenically related counterparts in other species. Fibrils were reconstituted in vitro when… CONTINUE READING
