Characterization of the Flavonoids from Petunia ×hybrida Flowers Expressing the A1 Gene of Zea mays

Abstract

The flavonoids from flowers of transgenic Petunia ×hybrida Vilm. plants containing the Al gene from Zea mays L. were characterized. The A1 gene encodes the enzyme dihydroflavonol reductase and was introduced into a mutant petunia defective for this gene. Control, nontransgenic plants produced flowers that contained ≈ 50 ng anthocyanin/ 100 mg tissue dry… (More)
