In order to provide additional information on the coloration of chrysanthemum flowers, the flavonoid composition and the expression of six structural genes involved in anthocyanin pathway in the ray florets of a pink flowering (cv. H5) and two white flowering (cvs. Keikai and Jinba) Chrysanthemum grandiflorum cultivars were examined. HPLCDAD/ESI-MSn analysis showed that cyanidin 3-O-(6″-O-malonylglucoside) and cyanidin 3-O-(3″,6″-O-dimalonylglucoside) were the two major flavonoids presented in… CONTINUE READING
