In Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis), the locus associated with orange inner leaves has been mapped. The mechanism responsible for carotenoid pigment synthesis in orange inner leaves of Chinese cabbage is still unclear, however, and limited molecular research has been conducted on the candidate gene. In this study, high-performance liquid chromatographic analysis indicated that orange leaf coloration in Chinese cabbage is due to accumulation of prolycopene and other carotenoid… CONTINUE READING
