The description of anthocyanin biosynthesis in Antirrhinum majus
followes mainly Martin C. et al.
The Stereochemistry of the chalcone to flavanone transistion is taken
from Hahlbrock K. et al. 1970.
Where more data is available links in the scheme can be followed to the
desciption of individual
enzymes catalysing single steps in anthocyanine synthesis.
Chalcone synthase (CHS)
Chalcone isomerase (CHI)
candi gene product + others
UDP glucose:flavonoid 3-O-glycosyltransferase
