The article focuses on polyphenols which are a group of plant secondary metabolites. Topics include flavonoid subgroups such as anthocyanins and flavonols; expansion in polyphenol research up to plant phenolics such as phenolic acids; and XXVIIth International Conference on Polyphenols and the 8th Tannin Conference held collaborately in Nagoya, Japan in September 2014.

    Flavonols, phenylalanine-derived secondary metabolites, have protective and regulatory functions in plants. In Arabidopsis thaliana, they are consecutively glycosylated at their 3-OH and 7-OH groups. UGT78D1 and UGT78D2 are the major flavonol 3-O-glycosyltransferases in Arabidopsis leaves. The...

    Diversity of colors in flowers and fruits is largely due to anthocyanin pigments. The flavonoid/anthocyanin pathway has been most extensively studied. Dihydroflavonol 4-reductase (DFR) is a vital enzyme of the flavonoid pathway which displays major impact on the formation of anthocyanins, flavan...
