Abstract

Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum Gaertn.) is highly nutritious and an excellent dietary source of flavonoid compounds. Chalcone synthase (CHS) is the first key enzyme involved in flavonoid biosynthesis. Here, three putative CHS genes (designated as FtCHS1 (GU172165), FtCHS2 (KT284884), and FtCHS3 (KT284885) were isolated from tartary buckwheat. Nucleotide sequence analysis indicated that FtCHS1 and FtCHS2 each contained one intron of 444 bp and 157 bp, respectively. FtCHS3 included two introns, one of 86 bp and another of 73 bp. The results of quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) showed the FtCHSs expression presented the same pattern in the stems and flowers, with FtCHS1>FtCHS3>FtCHS2. A different tendency was found in leaves, with FtCHS3>FtCHS2>FtCHS1. However, there was no direct correlation between the three CHS expression and total flavonoids. Furthermore, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) performance reveals rutin is the most abundant flavonoid in all tissues, leaves should be the main location for quercetin storage in tartary buckwheat.
