The biosynthesis of anthocyanins in plant tissues either requires light or is enhanced by it. Light-dependent anthocyanin synthesis has been extensively used as a model system for studies of the mechanism of photoregulation of plant development. Two components can be distinguished in the action of light on anthocyanin production. The first component is the red-far red reversible, phytochrome-mediated response induced by short irradiations; the amount of anthocyanin formed in response to a… CONTINUE READING
