- ... The process of in vivo esterification of xanthophylls has proven to be an important part of the post-carotenogenesis metabolism which mediates their accumulation in plants. The biochemical characterization of this process is therefore necessary for obtaining new and improved crop varieties with higher carotenoid contents. This study investigates the impact of postharvest storage conditions on caro ...

- ... Sorghum is a staple food for half a billion people and, through growth on marginal land with minimal inputs, is an important source of feed, forage and increasingly, biofuel feedstock. Here we present information about non-cellulosic cell wall polysaccharides in a diverse set of cultivated and wild Sorghum bicolor grains. Sorghum grain contains predominantly starch (64–76%) but is relatively defic ...
