Enzyme: Another names are indicated in parentheses. Copious notes are indicated in brackets. Gene: Original and/or common gene names are indicated. NI indicates that gene names are not indicated.
Functions of genes in brackets are not confirmed.
Classification: Species listed in the tables are not necessarily shown by the taxonomic categories, but are shown as follows;
Purple bacteria, Aerobic photosynthetic bacteria (APS), Green sulfur bacteria, Green filamentous bacteria (GF), Heliobacteria, Cyanobacteria, Eubacteria (except for above), Archaea, Algae, Fungus, Plant, Invertebrate, and Vertebrate.
Species: In the same taxonomic class described above, species names are arranged in an alphabetical order.
Species names in parentheses indicate a former taxonomical name, and names in brackets indicate a common name.
* When you find any mistakes or you know papers concerning the carotenogenesis genes, you are welcome to inform to the editor.
