  • Vitamin A deficiency caused by insufficient intake of β-carotene has emerged as one of the most important problems afflicting people worldwide. Traditional yellow maize is predominated by lutein and zeaxanthin; but contains low β-carotene par below the daily requirement for humans. A natural variant of crtRB1 allele increases β-carotene in kernel by blocking its conversion to zeaxanthin. In the present study, genetic diversity analyses were carried out among 24 diverse maize inbreds possessing… CONTINUE READING
