Effect of transient accumulation of anthocyanin on leaf development and photoprotection of Fagopyrum dibotrys mutant

Abstract

Changes in pigments contents, leaf area, leaf dry mass per unit area (LMA), photosynthetic rate and chlorophyll a fluorescence were investigated in developing leaves of Fagopyrum dibotrys Hara. mutant. Anthocyanins transiently accumulate below the upper epidermis during leaf ontogeny of this mutant. Red leaves possessed lower Chl content, LMA… (More)
