Arabidopsis GPAT9 contributes to synthesis of intracellular glycerolipids but not surface lipids
Highlight Arabidopsis glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 9 (GPAT9) is an sn-1 specific acyl-CoA:GPAT that contributes to intracellular glycerolipid biosynthesis in seeds, developing leaves andExpand
The Acyl Desaturase CER17 Is Involved in Producing Wax Unsaturated Primary Alcohols and Cutin Monomers1[OPEN]
TLDR
Evidence is provided that CER17/ADS4 performs n-6 desaturation of very long chain acyl-CoAs in both distal and basal stems and has a major function associated with governing cutin monomer amounts primarily in the distal segments of the inflorescence stem. Expand
Registration of WCL‐LY2 High Oil Lesquerella fendleri Germplasm
TLDR
WCL-LO3 has an improved oil concentration, harvest index, and seed yield compared to previously released germplasm, and should be suitable for geographic regions similar to the arid southwestern USA. Expand
Chemical variation for leaf cuticular waxes and their levels revealed in a diverse panel of Brassica napus L.
TLDR
This study is the most extensive analysis of wax chemical diversity within any plant taxon to date, and lays a foundation for future studies of wax metabolism and function, and the application of new breeding strategies to modify leaf waxes and improve stress tolerance in B. napus. Expand
Genome-wide association study (GWAS) of leaf cuticular wax components in Camelina sativa identifies genetic loci related to intracellular wax transport
TLDR
These loci could potentially serve as candidates for the genetic control involved in intracellular wax transport that might directly or indirectly facilitate leaf wax accumulation in C. sativa and can be used in future marker-assisted selection (MAS) to breed for the cultivars with high wax content to improve drought tolerance. Expand
Improvement in hydroxy fatty acid seed oil content and other traits from interspecific hybrids of three Lesquerella species: Lesquerella fendleri, L. pallida, and L. lindheimeri
TLDR
Interspecific hybridization offers potential to improve the hydroxy fatty acid (HFA) content of lesquerella fenderi through interspecific hybridization and to characterize hybrids and successive generations for seed oil fatty acid profile, fertility, seed set and other morphological traits. Expand
Characterization of leaf cuticular waxes and cutin monomers of Camelina sativa and closely-related Camelina species
TLDR
To expand Camelina growing zones into more arid regions, it is important to develop new drought resistant cultivars that can grow under water-limited conditions and to extend the understating of cuticle chemical composition among Camelina species. Expand
Chemical variation for fiber cuticular wax levels in upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) evaluated under contrasting irrigation regimes
TLDR
The findings suggest that the biosynthetic pathways associated with these compounds are contributing to the phenotypic variability of these two important fiber quality traits and thus the biochemical pathwaysassociated with cuticular fiber wax are candidates for metabolic engineering via molecular breeding approaches. Expand
An Ovule Culture Technique for Producing Interspecific Lesquerella Hybrids
TLDR
Lesquerella is a potential new oilseed crop, producing an unsaturated, hydroxy fatty acid (lesquerolic acid, C20:1-OH) with properties similar to imported castor oil and may be suitable donors for possible novel gene introgression by interspecific hybridization. Expand
