Additional Information
Additional Information
Anthocyanidin synthase (ANS)  belongs to the family of oxidoreductases and participates in flavonoid biosynthesis.

Dihydroflavonols are substrates for the biosynthesis of the coloured anthocyanin pigments, which are produced in three steps: firstly a reduction, catalysed by the enzyme dihydroflavonol 4-reductase (DFR); secondly the production of colourless anthocyanidin through the action of anthocyanidin synthase and thirdly addition of a glucose residue to produce a coloured anthocyanin molecule.
