Guizhou Tobacco Research Institute, Guiyang 550081, P.R. China
In order to effectively modulate the anabolism of carotenoid in tobacco, a β-carotene hydroxylase (BCH) gene related to plant carotenoid anabolism was cloned from Nicotiana tabacum. A cDNA sequence of encoded BCH gene was isolated from tobacco cv....
