Abstract

Carotenoids, the yellow-red pigments found in plants and animals are C40 H56 compounds with 8 polyene isoprenoid iresidues, aliphatic or alicyclic in structure and with many conjugated double bonds. ß-carotene is the starting point for the range of carotenoids in the animals. These are primordial plant pigments evolved along with the chlorophyll system acting as an accessory light-harvesting system not known to be synthesis,- ed by animal tissues
