MetaCyc Compound Class: a carotenoid

Superclasses: a lipid an isoprenoid a terpenoid a tetraterpenoid
a secondary metabolite a terpenoid a tetraterpenoid

Summary:
Carotenoids are isoprenoid pigments occurring naturally in plants and some microorganisms. They function as provitamins, antioxidants, and colorants.

Child Classes: a carotene (50) , a ketocarotenoid (18) , a xanthophyll (18) , an apocarotenoid (36)
