Abstract

SUMMARY

The polar carotenoid fraction from does not not appear to be a free carotenoid, but a carotenoid associated with glucose and a peptide. The glucose seems to be glycosidically bound to the carotenoid through its reducing group. Presumably the peptide is linked to the glucose through either the primary or one of the secondary hydroxyl groups on the carbohydrate molecule. A model of the state of the carotenoid complex in the bacterial membrane has been proposed.
