Biological function
Flavone synthase acts on the flavanones (naringenin, eriodictyol and pentahydroxyflavanone) to produce flavones (apigenin, luteolin and tricetin, respectively).

A major use of flavones in biotechnology is for them to act as co-pigments to enhance the bluing of the anthocyanins.
