Influence of the particle size and hydrocolloid type on lipid digestion of thickened emulsions
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020)
Hydrocolloids are used as stabilizing agents in order to enhance the physical stability of emulsions during their storage. However, they can also play an important role in nutrient release and bioavailability. In this ...
Molecular Characterization and Functional Analysis of Cytochrome b5 Reductase (CBR) Encoding Genes from the Carotenogenic Yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous
(Public Library Science, 2015)
The eukaryotic microsomal cytochrome P450 systems consist of a cytochrome P450 enzyme (P450) and a cytochrome P450 redox partner, which generally is a cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR) that supplies electrons from NADPH. ...
Cloning of the cytochrome p450 reductase (crtR) gene and its involvement in the astaxanthin biosynthesis of Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous
(BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2008-10-06)
Background: The yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous synthesizes astaxanthin, a carotenoid with high commercial interest. The proposed biosynthetic route in this organism is isopentenylpyrophosphate (IPP) -> geranyleranyl ...
Increased Nicotiana tabacum fitness through positive regulation of carotenoid, gibberellin and chlorophyll pathways promoted by Daucus carota lycopene beta-cyclase (Dclcyb1) expression
(Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
The expression of Dclcyb1 in tobacco induces a positive feedback on the isoprenoid, carotenoid, gibberellin and chlorophyll pathways leading to an enhancement in fitness, biomass, photosynthetic efficiency and carotenoid ...
The involvement of mig1 from xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous in catabolic repression: An active mechanism contributing to the regulation of carotenoid productiom
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
The red yeast X. dendrorhous is one of the few natural sources of astaxanthin, a carotenoid used in aquaculture for salmonid fish pigmentation and in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for its antioxidant properties. ...
Oral Supplementation of beta-Carotene Benefits the Hepatic Structure and Metabolism in Mice (Mus musculus) Exposed to A Chronic Ethanol ConsumptionLa Suplementación Oral de Betacaroteno Beneficia la Estructura Hepática y el Metabolismo en Ratones (Mus musculus) Expuestos a un Consumo Crónico de Etanol
(UNIV KEBANGSAAN MALAYSIA, 2023)
Genome-scale metabolic models of Microbacterium species isolated from a high altitude desert environment
The Atacama Desert is the most arid desert on Earth, focus of important research activities related to microbial biodiversity studies. In this context, metabolic characterization of arid soil bacteria is crucial to understand ...
Differential Contribution of the First Two Enzymes of the MEP Pathway to the Supply of Metabolic Precursors for Carotenoid and Chlorophyll Biosynthesis in Carrot (Daucus carota)
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
Carotenoids and chlorophylls are photosynthetic pigments synthesized in plastids from metabolic precursors provided by the methylerythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway. The first two steps in the MEP pathway are catalyzed ...
Regulation of carotenogenesis in the red yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous: the role of the transcriptional co-repressor complex Cyc8-Tup1 involved in catabolic repression
(Biomed Central, 2016)
Background: The yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous produces carotenoids of commercial interest, including astaxanthin and beta-carotene. Although carotenogenesis in this yeast and the expression profiles of the genes ...
Uso de mezclas de solventes en la extracción del carotenoide licopeno del tomate chonto (Lycopersicum esculentum)
(Universidad Católica de Colombia. Departamento de Ciencias BásicasBogotá, 2019)
En esta investigación se compara el rendimiento de la extracción del carotenoide licopeno del tomate chonto (Lycopersicum esculentum) usando mezclas de solventes que cubren todo el rango de polaridad. Utilizando tomate ...
