Abstract

The activation of the carotene biosynthetic pathway in Blakeslea trispora was found to occur by trisporic acid and many other compounds such as abscisic acid, β-ionone, α-ionone and vitamin A which share significant structural similarity with trisporic acid. The magnitude of stimulatory activities of these effectors was in the order trisporic acid > abscisic acid > β-ionone > α-ionone > vitamin A. Comparison of structures and stimulatory activities of all the effectors indicated that the short length of the side chain and the presence of a keto group in the ring structure of the trisporic acid molecule contributed significantly to the biological activity towards carotenogenesis.
