Light-dependent changes in plastid differentiation influence carotenoid gene expression and accumulation in carrot roots
Carrot is an important nutritional crop due to the high levels of pro-vitamin A carotenoids (β-carotene and, to a lower extent, α-carotene) that accumulate in its storage root during secondary growth. In this work we show ...
Modeling the interfacial interactions between CrtS and CrtR from xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous, a P450 system involved in astaxanthin production
Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous is a natural source of astaxanthin, a carotenoid widely used in the food industry. In this yeast, astaxanthin is synthesized from β-carotene by a cytochrome P450, CrtS, which depends on CrtR, ...
