800/298, Higher plant, seedling, plant seed, or plant part (i.e., angiosperms or gymnosperms)536/23.1, DNA or RNA fragments or modified forms thereof (e.g., genes, etc.)536/23.2, Encodes an enzyme536/23.6, Encodes a plant polypeptide435/419Plant cell or cell line, per se, contains exogenous or foreign nucleic acid
An isolated nucleic acid fragment encoding a chalcone synthase is disclosed. Construction of a recombinant DNA construct encoding all or a portion of the chalcone synthase, in sense or antisense orientation, wherein expression of the recombinant DNA construct results in production of altered levels of the chalcone synthase in a transformed host cell are also discussed.
