Mutations in elongation of very long-chain fatty acid-4 (ELOVL4) are associated with autosomal dominant Stargardt-like macular degeneration (STGD3), with a five base-pair (5 bp) deletion mutation resulting in the loss of 51 carboxy-terminal amino acids and truncation of the protein. In addition to the retina, Elovl4 is expressed in a limited number of(More)
Acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) thioesterase is the chain-length-determining enzyme in de novo biosynthesis of plant fatty acids. For cloning the gene encoding acyl-ACP thioesterase from Brassica juncea, genomic DNA was used as a template to amplify a 0.7 kb thioesterase fragment in a PCR with the primers designed from the known sequences available in the(More)
