Basic Information
CGSNL Gene Symbol RD
Gene Symbol Synonym Rd, DFR, OsDFR, OS-DFR
Gene Name Synonym Red pericarp and seed coat, dihydroflavonol 4-reductase, dihydroflavonol-4-reductase
Allele Rd1,Rd2
Chromosome No. 1
Explanation Responsible for spreading the color of Rc, when Rc co-exists, giving a dark red pericarp and seed coat, or red rice. Rd itself does not produce any pigment.
