Key message

Yellow Petal locus GaYP is located on chromosome 11 and encodes a Sg6 R2R3-MYB transcription factor, which promotes flavonol biosynthesis and yellow coloration in Asiatic cotton petals.


Petal color is pivotal to ornamental value and reproduction of plants. Yellow coloration in plant petals is mainly attributed to colorants including carotenoids, aurones and some flavonols. To date, the genetic regulatory mechanism of flavonol biosynthesis in petals is still to be elucidated. Here, we employed Asiatic cottons with or without deep yellow coloration in petals to address this question. Multi-omic and biochemical analysis revealed significantly up-regulated transcription of flavonol structural genes and increased levels of flavonols, especially gossypetin and 6-hydroxykaempferol, in yellow petals of Asiatic cotton. Furthermore, the Yellow Petal gene (GaYP) was mapped on chromosome 11 by using a recombinant inbred line population. It was found that GaYP encoded a transcriptional factor belonging to Sg6 R2R3-MYB proteins. GaYP could bind to the promoter of flavonol synthase gene (GaFLS) and activate the transcription of downstream genes. Knocking out of GaYP or GaFLS homologs in upland cotton largely eliminated flavonol accumulation and pale yellow coloration in petals. Our results indicated that flavonol synthesis, up-regulated by the R2R3-MYB transcription activator GaYP, was the causative factor for yellow coloration of Asiatic cotton petals. In addition, knocking out of GaYP homologs also led to decrease in anthocyanin accumulation and petal size in upland cotton, suggesting that GaYP and its homologs might modulate developmental or physiological processes beyond flavonol biosynthesis.
