Conducted a systematic review on the anthocyanin biosynthesis in horticultural crops regulated by various light factors,e.g. intensity,quality,and photoperiod,based on the literatures in the last three decades. Key transcription factors,their functional mechanism,and the entire molecular regulatory network related to this biological process were summarized.

Key words: horticultural crop, light, anthocyanin, biosynthesis
