Anthocyanidin reductase (ANR), encoded by the BANYULS gene, is a newly discovered enzyme of the flavonoid pathway involved in the biosynthesis of condensed tannins. ANR functions immediately downstream of anthocyanidin synthase to convert anthocyanidins into the corresponding 2,3-cis-flavan-3-ols. We report the biochemical properties of ANRs from the model legume Medicago truncatula (MtANR) and the model crucifer Arabidopsis thaliana (AtANR). Both enzymes have high temperature optima. MtANR… CONTINUE READING
