Title:
Effect of Dioxygenase Inhibitors on the Resistance-related Flavonoid Metabolism of Apple and Pears: Chemical, Biochemical and Molecular Biological Aspects 
Abstract:
The plant growth regulator prohexadione-Ca, which is an inhibitor of 2-oxoglutarate dependent dioxygenases, acts as an anti-gibberellin and also reduces fire blight and scab of apple and pear. This beneficial side effect is related to a transient alteration of the flavonoid metabolism in apple and pear target tissues. This paper reviews the changes of the composition of flavonoids and phenylpropanoids occurring in leaves treated with prohexadione-Ca. An alternative flavonoid pathway is described...    »
