additional information variations in carotenoid composition found in the Rhodoplanes species might be due to modified substrate specificity of the carotenogenesis enzymes, CrtC, CrtD, and CrtF. The high content of rhodopin in Rhodoplanes cryptolactis and Rhodoplanes pokkaliisoli indicates low activity of CrtD Rhodoplanes sp. ?
