High impact information on GAMMA-CAROTENE


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of GAMMA-CAROTENE

  • CrtYm, the CrtY homolog, metabolized lycopene to gamma-carotene, which was confirmed by deletion/expression analysis of the crtYm and by subsequent analysis of the metabolites from lycopene based on the retention times on high-performance liquid chromatography, UV-visible absorption spectra, and mass spectrometry [6].
