    • ...In addition to CRTISO, another isomerase in the carotenoid biosynthesis pathway Z-ISO has been identified in maize and Arabidopsis, which catalyzes the step upstream of CRTISO (Janick-Buckner et al. 2001; Li, et al. 2007, Chen et al. 2010)...

    • ...bacterial PDS (CRTI), while Z-ISO might originate from a bacterial gene NnrU that is required for denitrification (Isaacson et al. 2002, 2004; Park et al. 2002; Chen et al. 2010)...

    • ...The enzyme phytoene synthase (PSY), which is the subject of the current work, catalyzes the first carotenoidspecific reaction condensing two molecules geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate to form the colorless carotene phytoene, which is converted into the red-colored lycopene through the action of two desaturases and two enzymes involved in isomerisation (Bartley et al. 1999; Park et al. 2002; Isaacson et al. 2002, 2004; Chen et al. 2010)...

    • ...The condensation of two GGPP molecules produces the first carotene, phytoene, catalyzed by PSY (Fig. 1). Phytoene is desaturated by phytoene and ζ-carotene desaturases (PDS and ZDS) and isomerized by 15-cis-ζ-carotene isomerase (Z-ISO) (Chen et al. 2010) and carotene isomerase (CRTISO) to form the linear all trans-lycopene...

    • ...However, ZISO, a gene encoding another carotenoids isomerase for the conversion of the colorless 15-cis-phytoene to the red-colored all-trans-lycopene, was reported recently as a light-induced gene (Chen et al. 2010; Ishikawa et al. 2009)...
