The site of carotenogenic enzymes in chromoplasts from Narcissus pseudonarcissus L.

The membranes from the chromoplasts of Narcissus pseudonarcissus L. which are derived from the inner envelope membrane are the site of β-carotene synthesis from [1-14C]isopentenyl diphosphate. The enzymes involved are partly peripheral membrane proteins (prenyltransferase, phytoene synthase) and partly integral membrane proteins (cis-trans isomerase… (More)
