Biosynthesis of Anthocyanins

Anthocyanins are one group of the most abundant pigments in plants. Their biosynthesis is strongly regulated by different environmental factors controlling gene expression.  The protein complexes consisting of WD40-bHLH-MYB (WBM) are essentially involved in the regulation of anthocyanin biosynthesis. We are using Arabidopsis thaliana the model plant to engineer specific red cells that form a platform to understand accurate mechanisms of cell specificity of anthocyanin biosynthesis
