 Title    Inhibition of Carotene Biosynthesis in Cell Extracts of Phycomyces blakesleeanus  
 Abstract    Cell extracts o f the C l 15 (^-carotene-accum ulating) strain o f Phycom yces blakesleeanus were incubated with either [2-l4C]MVA or [1-I4C]IPP and a range o f possible inhibitors o f caro-tenogenesis, including bleaching herbicides, biphenyl com pounds and geranylacetone. Several o f these compounds were potent inhibitors o f /7-carotene form ation and caused the accum ulation o f phytoene. N o other carotenes were found to accum ulate, in vitro. The structures o f these inhibi­ tors, compared to that o f phytoene, suggest that they affect the enzym ic activity o f "phytoene dehydrogenase", possibly by com petitive inhibition.
