  • SummarySeparation of hypocotyls and cotyledons of turnip seedlings (Brassica rapa) reduced the yield of anthocyanin from the former. Feeding with a combination of phenylalanine, acetate and glucose (PAG) considerably increased anthocyanin synthesis in these excised hypocotyls. In blue light the yield equalled that of the controls with cotyledons attached but, in far-red, the maximum obtained was never more than 55% of the controls.A long pre-treatment with red light markedly reduced anthocyanin… CONTINUE READING
