|A star is born ... the first ipomoea nil transgenetic is born !
Yellow as the sun !... well almost !
Suntory Global Innovation Center Co., Ltd. (President: Yu-dai Masato, Minato-ku, Tokyo), the National Institute for Basic Biology, in collaboration with Kagoshima University, has succeeded he created a phantom the famous "yellow morning glory".
Background of the study :
The Morning glory bloom originally blue flowers ( Ipomoea nil ) . A result of many years of breeding, Ipomoea nil is now red, peach, purple, brown, colorful flower color exists, such as white. Bright yellow morning glory has been recorded in the atlas of the Edo period, but not transmitted to the current, yellow morning glory has been called the "phantom of the morning glory."
In general, yellow flowers, contains a yellow dye, such as carotenoids and Auron, but there is no inclusive morning glory these in large quantities.
This research group, we focus on how the snapdragon flowers to produce a yellow dye, worked on the realization of the "yellow morning glory" of illusion.
Results of research:
"In the snapdragon bloom yellow flowers, from the cream of the dye that chalcone, we have found that you are combining a yellow dye aurones by two of the function of the gene of chalcone glycosyltransferase gene and aurone synthetic gene. So, we introduced these two genes from snapdragon in the morning glory. In the experiment, we used the morning glory "54Y system" that generates a dye chalcone cream. This line of flowers, there is a feature that the petal is likely to shrink without opening clean.
The results of the experiment, as well as snapdragon, yellow dye aurone are synthesized in the petals of the morning glory, yellow morning glory reblogged flowering. In addition, shrinkage of petals that have been seen in "54Y system" has improved, I now clean flowering.
Right type of yellow flower obtained by selection.
And here's the result!
In a few years we hope to get darker yellow!

|It will be nice if it becomes available! I love it
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
