Abstract:
A mutant carotenoid-producing bacterium that includes a gene set forth in any of (a) to (c). (a) A gene of a carotenoid-producing bacterium, which codes for a protein that includes a mutant amino acid sequence in which at least the 225th amino acid residue of an amino acid sequence of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate synthase is substituted with another amino acid residue; (b) a gene of a carotenoid-producing bacterium, which codes for a protein that includes a mutant amino acid sequence in which at least the 305th amino acid residue of an amino acid sequence of decaprenyl diphosphate synthase is substituted with another amino acid residue; and (c) both of the genes in (a) and (b).
