We isolated a cDNA clone (CitFLS) encoding flavonol synthase (FLS) from the satsuma mandarin (Citrus unshiu Marc.) fruit and investigated the steady state of CitFLS RNA expression during the fruit development. The CitFLS was 1274 bp long, encoded 335 amino acid residues, and belonged to a family of 2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases. The level of CitFLS… CONTINUE READING
