A Rapid Nile Red Fluorescence-Based Method for Triacylglycerol Content in Microspore-Derived Cell Suspension Cultures of Brassica napus

Abstract

Brassica napus (L. cv Jet Neuf) microspore-derived (BnaMD) cell suspension cultures were used to study the biochemistry and molecular biology of plant lipid metabolism. The cell suspension cultures may also be a potentially useful trait-testing tool for further improvement of oilseed rape, the world’s third largest vegetable oil crop. Nile red fluorescence… (More)
