Anthocyaninless Cultivars of Sweet Orange Lack to Express the UDP-Glucose Flavonoid 3-O-Glucosyl Transferase

Abstract

In this study we isolated the partial cDNA clone of three enzymes active in the late steps of anthocyanins biosynthetic pathway such as DFR, ANS and UFGT from Citrus sinensis (L) Osbeck. The predicted aminoacids sequences shared very high identity values ranging from 77 % for DFR (Pyrus communis, Malus domestica), to 86 % for ANS (Vitis vinifera) with… (More)
