To date, numerous probabilities exist to alter the genetics of vegetation together with classical breeding and glossy molecular organic techniques reminiscent of recombinant DNA innovations and plant trans­ formation equipment. the purpose of this e-book is to study the feasibilities, provided via the present applied sciences, to change flower colors. as a result of nice value of anthocyanins as flower pigments, the most a part of this examine offers with this classification of flavonoids accountable for so much red-, red- and blue colors. Being electron poor, the flavylium nucleus of the anthocyanins is very reactive and undergoes - based upon pH - effectively structural differences that are coupled with color alterations. a few mechanisms that stabilizes the colored - at rate of the colourless buildings in vegetation are defined, together with acylation, co pigmentation and steel complicated formation. simply because no plant species possesses the genetic ability for generating types within the complete spectrum of colors, guy has sought for the right way to switch the genetic homes of crops. in recent times, traditional flower breeding is an increasing number of being supplemented by means of genetic engineering recommendations. This expertise bargains the chance to insert particular genes into the mobile genome and to move genes so much successfully among assorted organisms. the typical flower pigments, the anthocyanins, were studied for a few years and characterize now the easiest understood crew of secondary plant metabolites with recognize to (bio)chemistry and genetics.

Example text

24 Chapter I The pH of the vacuole influences metal complex formation and, as the following example will show, the acidity of the environment is also important. Aluminium, when associated to anthocyanins, has a bluing effect. 5 will produce blue flowers. At acidic pHs aluminium becomes more available and the concentration found in the flowers is higher than at more alkaline pHs (Griesbach, 1984). Takeda and co-workers (1985a) showed that the blue colour of Hydrangea sepals was mainly due to the complex of delphinidin-3-glucoside-aluminium-3-caffeoylquinic acid, in which - probably - aluminium stabilizes the interaction between the quinic ester and the anthocyanin.

Protoplasts can be genetically manipulated in two different ways, namely by the incorporation of defined genes and by asexually mixing of complete genomes (protoplast fusion). A disadvantage of this latter technique is the partial elimination of chromosomes after protoplast fusion which makes it is impossible to predict which combination of chromosomes will arise in the hybrid plants. 1 Introduction Unlike the conventional breeding methods and protoplast fusion, the genetic engineering technology offers the advantage of inserting specific genes into the cell genome.

Also transposons, which are capable to mutate genes reversibly by insertion and excission, can be employed as specific probes to clone genes (gene tagging) (Schell, 1987; Wienand and Saedler, 1987; Meyer, 1991). , 1989, 1990). Also in Glycine max, Pisum sativum and potato, the presence of transposable elements has been reported. , 1992b). , 1990) . The recombinant DNA technology permits the isolation and characterization of specific DNA fragments. The amplification of genes by cloning has provided sufficient quantities DNA for sequencing.
