Gene variation ups vitamin A source by 18-fold in maize

The enconomic time: ET Bureau, Mar 24, 2010, 01.18pm IST

A team of scientists has discovered rare variations of a maize gene (crtRB1) that can lead to an 18-fold increase in beta-carotene content of maize in an academic research setting. Plant breeders are starting to use these naturally occurring genetic variations to breed maize that can provide more beta-carotene to malnourished people. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A.

Vitamin A biofortification in corn

Nature Genetics, March 22, 2010

Naturally occurring genetic variants at the crtRB1 gene ― involved in synthesis of beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A ― are associated with increased levels of beta-carotene in maize, according to a report published online this week in Nature Genetics. These favorable variants are presently being bred into tropical maize grown in developing countries where vitamin A is needed to improve health...
