A concise representation of qPCR and HPLC data for visualizing the coordination of transcriptional regulation of the genes and the total amounts of anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins in Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton berry skin. DAB, days after bloom; AC3G, total amounts of anthocyanins-3-O-glucoside; AC35DG, total amounts of anthocyanins-3,5-di-O-glucoside; PAs, total amounts of proanthocyanidins. Abbreviations of the genes are the same as in Figure 2. Purple bar indicates the véraison phase. The heatmaps were generated by dividing the transcript abundance for each gene as in Figure 3 and 4, and the concentration of total anthocyanins and PAs as in Figure 5 and 6 into 5 percentiles of the highest level. The color legend represents the abundance of transcripts and metabolites in percentage range of the highest level for each gene and for total AC3G, AC35DG, and PAs.
