BACKGROUND The control of plant anthocyanin accumulation is via transcriptional regulation of the genes encoding the biosynthetic enzymes. A key activator appears to be an R2R3 MYB transcription factor. In apple fruit, skin anthocyanin levels are controlled by a gene called MYBA or MYB1, while the gene determining fruit flesh and foliage anthocyanin has(More)
Sugar-mediated regulation of gene expression is a mechanism controlling the expression of many different plant genes. In this review, a compilation of the genes encoding photosynthetic proteins, subject to this mode of regulation, is presented. Several groups have devised different screening strategies to obtain Arabidopsis mutants in sugar sensing and(More)
A mutant allele of the transcription factor gene MYB10 from apple induces anthocyanin production throughout the plant. This gene, including its upstream promoter, gene coding region and terminator sequence, was introduced into apple, strawberry and potato plants to determine whether it could be used as a visible selectable marker for plant transformation as(More)
