BGS 609, Proanthocyanidin-free 29, ant29

BGN  29:100
Stock number: BGS 609
Locus name: Proanthocyanidin-free 29
Locus symbol: ant29

Previous nomenclature and gene symbolization:



Monofactorial recessive (2).
Location is unknown.


Mutant plants synthesize a wild type amount of anthocyanins in the vegetative parts. Under stress conditions the mutant grains can produce a varying but always small amount of proanthocyanidins. Compared to the wild type the proanthocyanidin content is clearly decreased (2).
