violaxanthin

a carotene epoxide that is precursor to capsanthin; one of 3 xanthophylls involved in evolution of plastids of green plants (oxygen evolution); 3 (violaxanthin, zeaxanthin & antheraxanthin) participate in series of photo-induced interconversions known as ''violaxanthin cycle''; structure; cleavage of 9-cis-epoxycarotenoids (violaxanthin) to xanthoxin, catalyzed by 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase, is the key regulatory step of ABSCISIC ACID biosynthesis
Also Known As:
5,6:5',6'-diepoxy-5,5',6,6'- tetrahydro-beta-carotene-3,3'-diol; zeaxanthin diepoxide; (3S,3'S,5R,5'R, 6S,6'S)-5,6:5',6'-diepoxy-5,5',6,6'-tetrahydro-beta,beta- carotene-3,3'-diol
