DcMYB1 Acts as a Transcriptional Activator of the Carrot Phenylalanine Ammonia-lyase Gene (DcPAL1) in Response to Elicitor Treatment, UV-B Irradiation and the Dilution Effect
Expression of a carrot phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) gene (DcPAL1) in suspension-cultured carrot cells is induced by treatment with a fungal elicitor, ultraviolet B (UV-B) irradiation, and byExpand

Isolation and characterization of a cDNA clone of UDP-galactose: flavonoid 3-O-galactosyltransferase (UF3GaT) expressed in Vigna mungo seedlings.
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 theExpand

Excision of transposable elements from the chalcone isomerase and dihydroflavonol 4-reductase genes may contribute to the variegation of the yellow-flowered carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus).
In the "Rhapsody" cultivar of the carnation, which bears white flowers variegated with red flecks and sectors, a transposable element, dTdic1, belonging to the Ac/Ds superfamily, was found within theExpand

Tandemly arranged chalcone synthase A genes contribute to the spatially regulated expression of siRNA and the natural bicolor floral phenotype in Petunia hybrida.
The natural bicolor floral traits of the horticultural petunia (Petunia hybrida) cultivars Picotee and Star are caused by the spatial repression of the chalcone synthase A (CHS-A) gene, which encodesExpand

p-Hydroxybenzoyl-Glucose Is a Zwitter Donor for the Biosynthesis of 7-Polyacylated Anthocyanin in Delphinium[W]
Polyacylation of anthocyanin at the 7-position is crucial for the blue pigmentation of delphinium flowers. 7-Polyacylated anthocyanin is synthesized via a step-by-step reaction mediated by vacuolarExpand

Flavonoid biosynthesis in white-flowered Sim carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus)
Abstract Analysis of flavonoid composition and gene expression of enzymes involved in anthocyanin synthesis in flowers of four acyanic and one cyanic cultivar of Sim carnation showed that the acyanicExpand

Genomic organization of the genes encoding dihydroflavonol 4-reductase for flower pigmentation in the Japanese and common morning glories.
Genomic DNA segments (approximately 17kb) containing three DFR genes in the Japanese and common morning glories were sequenced. The three DFR genes in both plants were found to be arranged in aExpand

A Novel Glucosylation Reaction on Anthocyanins Catalyzed by Acyl-Glucose–Dependent Glucosyltransferase in the Petals of Carnation and Delphinium[C][W]
This work describes a glucosylation reaction at the 5/7 positions of anthocyanins in the petals of carnations and delphiniums. Unusually, this reaction is catalyzed by acyl-glucose–dependentExpand

Isolation and characterization of cDNAs encoding an enzyme with glucosyltransferase activity for cyclo-DOPA from four o'clocks and feather cockscombs.
cDNAs encoding an enzyme with UDP-glucose:cyclo-DOPA 5-O-glucosyltransferase activity were isolated from four o'clocks and feather cockscombs. Phylogenetic analysis of the amino acid sequencesExpand
