英文摘要: Abstract(#br)By using fosmidomycin and mevinolin (inhibitors of the synthesis of isoprenoid pigments), spectrophotometry, and mass spectrometry, the presence of isoprenoid pigments is shown in 71 of the 78 strains under study. All of these strains belong to 11 genera of the family Microbacteriaceae . Yellow, orange, and red pigments are found to have absorption spectra typical of C 40 -carotenoids. Eight out of the sixteen strains of the genus Microbacterium are able to synthesize neurosporene, a precursor of lycopene and β-carotene. The biosynthesis of carotenoids in some representatives of the genera Agromyces, Leifsonia , and Microbacterium is induced by light. Inhibition of the biosynthesis of isoprenoid pigments by fosmidomycin suggests that they are synthesized via the nonmevalonate...
