Vanillin Assay of Arabidopsis Seeds for Proanthocyanidins
Authors:  Lijie Xuan, Zhong Wang and Lixi Jiang, date: 12/05/2014, view: 8981, Q&A: 0
Proanthocyanidins (PAs) are colorless flavonoid polymers and deposit in Arabidopsis seed coat specifically. Oxidation of PAs gives rise to brown color of mature seeds. PA accumulation can be affected by a number of growth conditions, such ...
