The most abundant types of lipid in most cells, however, are those that derive from the fatty acid and glycerolipid biosynthetic pathway, and these lipids constitute the major subject of this article.
Building lipid barriers: biosynthesis of cutin and suberin.
This chapter focuses on the metabolic pathways that are associated with the biosynthesis and degradation of the acyl lipids that represent their major form of carbon and energy storage in Arabidopsis.
Contrapuntal Networks of Gene Expression during Arabidopsis Seed Filling Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at www.plantcell.org/cgi/doi/10.1105/tpc.000877.
We have used cDNA microarrays to examine changes in gene expression during Arabidopsis seed development and to compare wild-type and mutant wrinkled1 (wri1) seeds that have an 80% reduction in oil.…
DGAT1 and PDAT1 Acyltransferases Have Overlapping Functions in Arabidopsis Triacylglycerol Biosynthesis and Are Essential for Normal Pollen and Seed Development[W][OA]
In vivo involvement of PDAT1 in TAG biosynthesis is established, major contributions by other candidate enzymes are ruled out, and overlapping functions that are essential for normal pollen and seed development of Arabidopsis are indicated.

GPATs are identified as partners of fatty acyl oxidases in lipid polyester synthesis and indicate that their cooverexpression provides a strategy to probe the role of cutin composition and quantity in the function of plant cuticles.
Oil content of Arabidopsis seeds: the influence of seed anatomy, light and plant-to-plant variation.
Sampling the Arabidopsis Transcriptome with Massively Parallel Pyrosequencing1[W][OA]
The results indicate massively parallel pyrosequencing provides novel information helpful to improve the annotation of the Arabidopsis genome and the unbiased representation of transcripts will be particularly useful for gene discovery and gene expression analysis of nonmodel plants with less complete genomic information.

Data point to synthesis of fatty acids and supply of pyruvate in the plastid, rather than acyl assembly into triacylglycerol, as a major control over the storage of oil in the mesocarp of oil palm.

Evidence is provided for a critical role of GPAT5 in polyester biogenesis in seed coats and roots and for the importance of lipid polymer structures in the normal function of these organs.
