ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the biosynthesis of carotenoid for antioxidant. Carotenoids are natural pigments, act as colouring agent and predominantly distributed among bacteria, plants and fungi including animals.

Over different carotenoids types are known to exist in nature. Their colour range from yellow to red with variations of brown and [ ]. Carotenoids Biosynthesis and Their Metabolic Engineering in Plants It has been also suggested that some kinds of carotenoids might provide protection against cancer and heart disease as human.

Carotenoids biosynthetic pathway 1. CAROTENOIDS BIOSYNTHETIC PATHWAY PRESENTED BY: MADHU NATH 2. Carotenoids are a family of isoprenoid molecules that are widespread in nature.

They are responsible for the typical yellow, orange, and red colours of most fruits, flowers, and vegetables, and for the characteristic colours of many. Carotenoids are organic pigments commonly present in plants, photosynthetic algae and some species of fungi and bacteria.

They are normally associated with thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts and often provide the yellow, orange and red pigmentation to many flowers, fruits and roots [].In plants, carotenoids play an important role in photosynthesis, photo-oxidative protection [], and Cited by: As such, carotenoids are commercially important in agriculture, food, health and the cosmetic industries.

In plants, carotenoids are essential components required for photosynthesis, photoprotection and the production of carotenoid-derived phytohormones, including ABA. systems where clusters of genes for carotenoid biosynthesis enzymes were identified by transposon mutagenesis or by functional expression in the bacterium Escherickia coli (reviewed in ref.

2,3). Sequence analysis indicated that homologous genes are significantly conserved among all of the bacterial and fungal species Size: KB. Some carotenoids serve as precursors for vitamin A, which is essential to human and animal diets, and as antioxidants, which play a role in reducing the risk of certain forms of cancer (Olson, ).

Citrus is a complex source of carotenoids, with the largest number of carotenoids found in any fruit (Gross, ). Carotenoid concentration and Cited by: The carotenoid biosynthetic pathway serves manifold roles in plants related to photosynthesis, photoprotection, development, stress hormones, and various volatiles and signaling apocarotenoids.

The pathway also produces compounds that impact human nutrition and metabolic products that contribute to fragrance and flavor of food and non-food by: the bacterial photosynthetic apparatus.

It was important to find out whether or not these foreign carotenoids could carry out a light-harvesting function.

Moreover, the introduction of novel carotenoids into the well-characterized bacterial photo-synthetic unit has implications for the assembly ofthe unit, as well as for the specificity. Carotenoids are indispensable to plants and play a critical role in human nutrition and health.

Significant progress has been made in our understanding of carotenoid metabolism in plants. A) Most bacteria are capable of using ammonia as their sole nitrogen source. B) Some bacteria are able to use nitrates or nitrogen gas as their nitrogen source. C) Most available nitrogen is in organic forms.

D) Nitrogen is a major component of proteins and nucleic acids. These pigments are derived from the general isoprenoid pathway by head-to-tail condensation of two C 15 or C 20 isoprenoid diphosphate precursors to form carotenoids with a C 30 or C 40 backbone, respectively, which then are modified further to yield distinct carotenoid structures.

Genes encoding the enzymes involved in central carotenoid biosynthetic pathways have been cloned, and enzymes Cited by:   The relationship between carotenoid accumulation and the expression of carotenoid biosynthetic genes during fruit maturation was investigated in three citrus varieties, Satsuma mandarin (Citrus unshiu Marc.), Valencia orange (Citrus sinensis Osbeck), and Lisbon lemon (Citrus limon Burm.f.).

We cloned the cDNAs for phytoene synthase (CitPSY), phytoene desaturase (CitPDS), ζ. Metabolism (/ m ə ˈ t æ b ə l ɪ z ə m /, from Greek: μεταβολή metabolē, "change") is the set of life-sustaining chemical reactions in three main purposes of metabolism are: the conversion of food to energy to run cellular processes; the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates; and the elimination of.

Carotenoids are of great interest due to their essential biological functions in both plants and animals. However, the properties and functions of carotenoids in natural systems are surprisingly complex.

“cryptic” carotenoid biosynthetic genes by increasing their copy number by placing them on a high-copy-number plasmid, since S. griseus IFO does not produce a detectable amount of carotenoids under the laboratory conditions.

In the bacterial genus Streptomyces, carotenoid production is light-inducible, constitutive, or completely.

Carotenoids have been extensively studied in Solanaceae plants such as tomato, pepper, etc. [18, 27–29]. Geranyl-geranyl pyrophosphate is the precursor of carotenoid biosynthetic pathway which leads to the synthesis of large number of carotenoids such as lycopene, β-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, etc.

[ 30, 31 ] (Figure 2).Cited by: Abstract. The burgeoning demand for complex, biologically active molecules for medicine, materials science, consumer products, and agrochemicals is driving efforts to engineer new. Carotenoids -- over six hundred different types -- are vitamin-like pigments found in many fruits and vegetables.

For a long time, scientists did not know whether carotenoids had any nutritional benefit, but now it is increasingly clear that many of them have antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties.

All photosynthetic organisms and some non-photosynthetic bacteria and fungi synthesize carotenoids. In plants, C 40 carotenoids are produced and stored in plastids (Fig. 1).Cited by:   Could find a previous thread specifically related to this, but I was wondering how you can determine the order of enzymes in a biosynthetic pathway, using that weird looking chart.

I was never good at this, even when I took genetics lab and we had to do a chromatography experiment on it. Engineering of polyketide biosynthetic pathways for bioactive molecules by Siyuan Wang, Doctor of Philosophy Utah State University, Major Professor: Jixun Zhan Department: Biological Engineering Polyketides are a large group of structurally diverse natural products that have shown a variety of biological : Siyuan Wang.

For their work, they won the Nobel Prize. Their hypothesis was later revised to “one gene, one polypeptide” to account for the fact that enzymes can be composed of two or more polypeptide chains. (In fact, these genes, one could even include “non-coding RNAs”, as researchers have demonstrated function genetically for some RNAs that don’tFile Size: 62KB.

During plant development, two main mechanisms have been described to regulate carotenoid biosynthesis and accumulation in chromoplasts: (i) variation in the abundance of carotenogenic gene transcripts, and (ii) the presence of structures sequestering carotenoids in plastids (Howitt and Pogson, ).In tomato, which represents the main model of carotenogenesis in fruits, Cited by: Brock Biology of Microorganisms, 14e (Madigan et al.)

Carotenoid is a group of pigment and its production is a natural phenomenon. Carotenoids are synthesized by bacteria, plants, fungi, and algae (1).

Although their primary function is photoprotection (2), they are also precursors of vitamin A in humans (3) and of abscisic acid in plants (4). The first two steps in the biosynthetic pathway are mediated by soluble enzymes (5).
