A spectacular evolutionary achievement allowed the aphid to produce carotenoids obviously by lateral transfer of genes from fungi. We have recently documented that these molecules are involved in photo conditioning of metabolism such ATP synthesis in this insect model. The carotenoid synthesis in aphid was directly determined in living insects without extraction procedure by Raman i...
