Among the 2-oxoglutaric acid-dependent dioxygenase genes involved in the pathway, flavanone 3-hydroxylase gene (F3H) and anthocyanidin synthase gene (ANS) had the highest levels of expression, suggesting that the loss of red color might be the reason of the synergistic inhibitory effect of these enzymes especially F3H and ANS in response to Pro-Ca.

Cytokines reduce tryptophan availability by activating the enzyme which metabolizes it, indoleamine 2,3- dioxygenase. Such an excessive indoleamine 2, 3- dioxygenase stimulation can lead to a tryptophan decrease in serum, which is accompanied by a significant reduction of 5-HT synthesis.
