Flavonoid 3′-hydroxylase (F3′H: EC 1.14.13.21) is an important enzyme which determines the hydroxylation pattern of anthocyanins. In this study, the full-length cDNA and genomic DNA of F3′H were isolated and characterized from the purple-fleshed sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas). IbF3’′H was 1,789 bp containing a 1,554 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding 518… CONTINUE READING
