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:
