- ... The colour of plum (Prunus salicina Lindl.) is important for its commercial value.We have studied the differences in anthocyanin content and biosynthesis between the purple plum ‘Oishi Wase’, and the black plum ‘Black Amber’. The anthocyanin content of ‘Black Amber’ was five-times higher than in ‘Oishi Wase’. Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) and UDP-glucose:flavonoid 3-O-glucosyltransferase (U ...
