Four cDNA clones were isolated from Vigna mungo seedlings by the screening with cDNA encoding UDP-glucose:flavonoid 3-O-glucosyltransferase (UF3GT) of Antirrhinum majus as a probe; the product of the gene corresponding to one cDNA was more highly expressed in the first simple leaves than in stems. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed 1,691 bp (including(More)
Analysis of ̄avonoid composition and gene expression of enzymes involved in anthocyanin synthesis in ̄owers of four acyanic and one cyanic cultivar of Sim carnation showed that the acyanic ̄ower cultivars are divided into three types. The ®rst includes two normal white cultivars, `U Conn Sim' and `White Sim'; the second includes a nearly pure white(More)
An enzyme,S-adenosyl-l-methionine: flavonoid 7-O-methyltransferase (F7OMT), catalyzing the transfer of the methyl group fromS-adenosyl-l-methionine (SAM) to the 7 position of sophoricoside (5, 7, 4′-trihydroxyisoflavone 4′-O-glucoside) and some of the other flavonoids, was detected in extracts from leaves ofPrunus x yedoensis, and it was partially purified(More)
