In Dunaliella salina, we studied the early steps in the isoprenoid pathway for the biosynthesis of carotenoids and β-carotene and the effects of metabolic inhibitors. When D. salina was grown under carotenogenic and non-carotenogenic conditions, mevinolin did not inhibit growth or the accumulation of carotenoids, β-carotene or chlorophyll. In contrast, fosmidomycin progressively inhibited cell growth and the biosynthesis of carotenoids, β-carotene and chlorophyll. In this work, we reported for… Expand
