Biosynthesis and manipulation of flavonoids in forage legumes

White clover is an important pasture legume of temperate regions, generally through co-cultivation with a pasture grass in a mixed-sward setting. White clover provides herbage with high nutritional quality to grazing animals, along with the environmental benefit of biological nitrogen fixation. Several key agronomic traits are amenable to modification in white clover through use of transgenic technology. Efficient methods for -mediated transformation of white clover have been developed. The current status of transgenic research is reviewed for the following traits: resistance to viruses and insect pests; aluminium tolerance and phosphorus acquisition efficiency; control of leaf senescence and seed yield; biosynthesis of flavonoids and rumen bypass proteins for bloat safety and enhanced ruminant nutrition; cyanogenesis; and drought tolerance. Future prospects for transgenic technology in molecular breeding in white clover are also discussed.

Flavonoids are widely distributed in higher plants and synthesized via the phenylpropanoid pathway. They play important roles in oxidative stress, UV filtration, symbiotic nitrogen fixation and floral pigmentation. For human beings, flavonoids have a broad range of biological and pharmacological activities. With the increase in living standards, people are becoming more and more interested in healthy food. Flavonoid components and their biosynthetic pathways differ in different plant species. Thus, it is a big challenge to identify specialized flavonoid components and elucidate their biosynthetic pathways. In addition, regulatory mechanisms underlying flavonoid biosynthesis are also important for improving plant productivity and food quality. The world leading scientists in this field will be invited to present their state-of-the-art advances in the study of flavonoid biosynthesis and regulatory mechanisms. Some speakers will be directly selected from the submitted abstracts through the congress website. Here, we sincerely invite you to participate in this symposium and look forward to meeting you in Shenzhen.
