The Occurrence Of Astaxanthin In The Euglenoid Trachelomonas Volvocina

The Occurrence Of Astaxanthin In The Euglenoid Trachelomonas Volvocina

Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology 9: 313-316

Chromatographic analysis of the carotenoid pigments in Trachelomonas volvocina has revealed the presence of astaxanthin in addition to the usual carotenoids of green algae: [beta]-carotene, lutein, violaxanthin and neoxanthin. A keto-carotenoid was also found, indicating that the metabolic pathway leading to the formation of astaxanthin in Trachelomonas is similar to that in the Metazoa.
