In nature, carotenoid function and mode of action are highly determined by the neighboring protein and lipid molecules. Therefore an understanding of the proteins' involvement in carotenoid sequestration would be of great help in elucidating carotenoid function in vivo. Based on a study of the expression of chromoplast-specific carotenoid-associated genes from cucumber corolla (CHRC and CHRD), a working model is presented wherein two major regulatory factors control carotenoid sequestration… CONTINUE READING
