Reactions known to consume the compound:

neurosporene biosynthesis :
all-trans-ζ-carotene + an oxidized electron acceptor → all-trans neurosporene + a reduced electron acceptor

linoleate biosynthesis I (plants) :
oleoyl-CoA + a lipid + H+ → a lipid oleoyl-group + coenzyme A

Reactions known to produce the compound:

neurosporene biosynthesis :
all-trans phytofluene + an oxidized electron acceptor → all-trans-ζ-carotene + a reduced electron acceptor

glutathione redox reactions I :
a lipid hydroperoxide + 2 glutathione + H+a lipid + glutathione disulfide + 2 H2O

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
15-cis-phytoene + 2 an oxidized electron acceptor = all-trans-ζ-carotene + 2 a reduced electron acceptor
all-trans-ζ-carotene + 2 an oxidized electron acceptor = all-trans-lycopene + 2 a reduced electron acceptor
