medically important carotenoids from momordica

beta

β-Carotene is an organic strongly colored red-orange pigment abundant in fungi plants and fruits It is a member of the carotenes which are terpenoids (isoprenoids) synthesized biochemically from eight isoprene units and thus having 40 carbons Among the carotenes β-carotene is distinguished by having beta-rings at both ends of the molecule β-Carotene is biosynthesized from

Molecules

Carotenoids are a class of lipid-soluble pigments responsible for the colors of plants animals and microorganisms [1 2 3 4] Since the first structural elucidation of β-carotene by Kuhn and Karrer in the 1930s approximately 1100 natural carotenoids have been reported so far [] Carotenoids can be classified into the following two groups based on their chemical composition: (1) carotenes
