Associations of Petunia with chemical compounds

  • Here we report on the isolation of complementary DNA clones of two different flavonoid 3',5'-hydroxylase genes that are expressed in petunia flowers [6].
  • The petunia mutant RL01, which accumulates dihydrokaempferol, shows no flower pigmentation [7].
  • FLOOZY of petunia is a flavin mono-oxygenase-like protein required for the specification of leaf and flower architecture [20].
  • In this paper we report the isolation of cDNA clones encoding the flavonoid-biosynthetic enzyme chalcone flavanone isomerase (CHI) from Petunia hybrida [21].
  • In Petunia, the expression of the 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase gene (EPSPS) is tissue-specific and developmentally regulated [22].
