Possible Interaction: Carotenoids and Nicotine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Nicotine , which was used to inhibit carotenoid cyclization, caused the accumulation of the acyclic carotenoid, lycopene.

Inhibition of the transformation of precursors into carotenoids by nicotine prevents the light-inducible development of PSII activity and CPa formation.

When R1mR cells were grown in the presence of nicotine , an inhibitor of carotenoid biosynthesis, both the proton uptake and ATP synthesis were completely depressed, but recovered after all-trans retinal was added externally.

Nicotine and 2-(4-chlorophenylthio)triethylammonium chloride (CPTA) each inhibit production of the normal carotenoids of Rhodomicrobium vannielii (Rhodospirillaceae), especially rhodopin, beta-carotene and spirillixanthin, and cause the accumulation of lycopene.

In particular, nicotine inhibits the formation of cyclic carotenoids in many micro- organisms, and causes the accumulation of acyclic pigments considered to be intermediates in the bio- synthetic pathway.
