Methyl 5-glucosyl-5,6-dihydro-apo-4,4′-lycopenoate, a novel antioxidative glyco-C30-carotenoic acid produced by a marine bacterium Planococcus maritimus

Abstract

Planococcus maritimus strain iso-3 was isolated from an intertidal sediment sample from the Clyde estuary in the UK. A novel red pigment glyco-carotenoic acid ester, methyl glucosyl-3,4-dehydro-apo-8′-lycopenoate has been isolated from this marine bacterium using chromatographic methods. The structure of methyl glucosyl-3,4-dehydro-apo-8′-lycopenoate was… (More)
