Carotenoid biosynthesis in plants includes a complex series of desaturation/isomerisation reactions, catalyzed by four independent enzymes. In bacteria and fungi one desaturase/isomerase enzyme completes the same series of reactions. In the present study, a bacterial desaturase (crtI) from Pantoea ananatis has been overexpressed in the tangerine mutant of tomato (Solanum lycopersicon) which accumulates cis-carotene isomers in the fruit due to a defective isomerase (CRTISO) and the old gold… CONTINUE READING
