Genetic engineering of flower colour and development

Genetic engineering of flower colour and development

Horticultural exploitation of recent biological developments: 11-15

Recent work involving Petunia is reviewed under the following headings: transfer of the pelargonidin pathway from maize to petunia; flower colour modulation by antisense genes; flower colour modulation by homologous sense genes; is co-suppression related to antisense inhibition?; and absence of flavonoids causes a disturbance in male gametophyte development: a novel protocol to engineer nuclear male sterility.
