    [Abstract] Carotenoids in plants play several key functions such as acting as light-harvesters, antioxidants (Lado et al., 2016) or being precursors of strigolactones, abscisic acid, volatiles and other signaling compounds (Arbona et al., 2013). Although those functions are well-known in light-exposed tissues, information in belowground ...
    Measurement of Chlorophyll a and Carotenoids Concentration in Cyanobacteria
    Authors:  Tomáš Zavřel, Maria A. Sinetova and Jan Červený, date: 05/05/2015, view: 24487, Q&A: 2
    [Abstract] This is a protocol for precise measurement of chlorophyll a and total carotenoid concentrations in cyanobacteria cells. Cellular chlorophyll concentration is one of the central physiological parameters, routinely followed in many research areas ranging from stress physiology to biotechnology. Carotenoids concentration is often related to ...
    Carotenoid Extraction and Quantification from Capsicum annuum
    Authors:  Richard D. Richins, James Kilcrease, Laura Rodgriguez-Uribe and Mary A. O’Connell, date: 10/05/2014, view: 10432, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Carotenoids are ubiquitous pigments that play key roles in photosynthesis and also accumulate to high levels in fruit and flowers. Specific carotenoids play essential roles in human health as these compounds are precursors for Vitamin A; other specific carotenoids are important sources of macular pigments and all carotenoids are important ...
