Allelic structures of UDP-glucose:limonoid glucosyltransferase affect limonoid bitterness in Citrus unshiu and C. sinensis


To develop a molecular indicator for determining the level of limonoid bitterness in Satsuma mandarin (Citrus unshiu) and navel orange (C. sinensis), the genetic background of the transcription of the limonoid glucosyltransferase gene was characterized in relation to the accumulation of non-bitter limonoid glucosides. Two types of cDNA clones (CitLGT-1 and… (More)
