The effects of environmental and chemical signals on anthocyanin biosynthesis in non-chlorophyllous (white) corn leaves were investigated. Carbohydrates that caused the greatest stimulation of anthocyanin formation included fructose, glucose, and sucrose, followed by maltose, raffinose, trehalose, cellobiose, melibiose, galactose, and lactose. Sucrose enhanced the expression of anthocyanin biosynthesis genes on a transcriptional level. Carbohydrate concentration, duration of light exposure, and… CONTINUE READING
