LITERATURE
malfunction
the deletion mutant strain DELTAc0507 shows the same growth rate as wild-type strain. The main cartotenoid products of the mutant strain are tetrahydrobisanhydrobacterioruberin and dihydroisopentenyldehydrorhodopin. When plasmid pJc0507 containing the intact c0507 gene is introduced into the DELTAc0507 strain, the transformant restores the production of bacterioruberin
metabolism
the enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of the C50 carotenoid bacterioruberin
