Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9963055A1] Nucleic acid sequences encoding epsilon -cyclase, isopentenyl pyrophosphate isomerase and beta -carotene hydroxylase as well as vectors containing the same and hosts transformed with the vectors. Methods for controlling the ratio of various carotenoids in a host and for the production of novel carotenoid pigments. The present invention also provides a method for screening for eukaryotic genes encoding carotenoid biosynthesis, and for modifying the disclosed enzymes.
