Comparative transcriptome analysis of litchi ( Litchi chinensis Sonn.) buds at two developmental stages revealed multiple processes involving various phytohormones regulating floral initiation, and expression of numerous flowering-related genes. Floral initiation is a critical and complicated plant developmental process involving interactions of numerous(More)
We analyzed a litchi cultivar that included three phenotypes for pericarp color, ranging from green, indicating the absence of anthocyanins, to yellow, and red. Anthocyanins, chlorophylls, carotenoids, and flavonoids were measured in the three stages. Fruit coloration of red-skinned litchi was mainly due to higher flavonols, and anthocyanin pigments, lower(More)
The fruit of litchi (Litchi chinensis) comprises a white translucent edible aril surrounded by a pericarp. The pericarp of litchi has been the focus of studies associated with fruit size, coloration, cracking and shelf life. However, research at the molecular level has been limited by the lack of genomic and transcriptomic information. In this study, an(More)
Glycosylation plays a major role in the diversity in the chemical compositions of flavonoids. In this study, we performed biochemical and molecular assays to identify a glucosyltransferase gene responsible for the anthocyanin composition in litchi. Cyanidin-3-glucoside and cyanidin-3-rutinoside were predominant anthocyanins in the red pericarp and young(More)
A novel LcGST4 was identified and characterized from Litchi chinensis . Expression and functional analysis demonstrated that it might function in anthocyanin accumulation in litchi. Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) have been defined as detoxification enzymes for their ability to recognize reactive electrophilic xenobiotic molecules as well as endogenous(More)
