An insertion sequence of 283 base pairs has been isolated from the DFR-C gene (dihydroflavonol-4-reductase) of petunia. This insert was found only in a line unstable for the An1 locus (anthocyanin 1, located on chromosome VI) and not in fully pigmented progenitor and revertant lines or in stable white derivative lines. This implies that the An1 locus encodes the DFR-C gene. The unstable An1 system in the line W138 is known to be a two-element system, the autonomous element being located on… CONTINUE READING
