It also activated a number of genes, including chs, f3h, dfr, Idox and ufgt, which are involved in the biochemical pathways of the ripening processes.
On the other hand, 1-MCP (1-methylcyclopropene), strongly reduced the formation of anthocyanins and reduced the activity of the gene ufgt, one of the genes that codes for enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of anthocyanins.
By contrast, a mutation of this type acting at a late stage (e.g., affecting anthocyanidin synthase or UFGT) will block production only of anthocyanins.
