Analysis of anthocyanin biosynthesis genes expression profiles in contrasting cultivars of Japanese plum (Prunus salicina L.) during fruit development.


Flavonoids are responsible of different fruit sensorial properties. In Japanese plum (Prunus salicina L.) these compounds are variable in both type and quantity during the different stages of fruit growth and maturation. Here we present the first study which determines the expression profile of structural genes of the flavonoid pathway and accumulation… (More)
