Seed oils represent a major source of dietary lipid and an increasingly valuable feedstock for industrial applications. There have been several attempts to modify seed oil content and composition through biotechnological approaches, resulting in the identification of several 'bottlenecks' limiting the accumulation of unusual fatty acids in storage lipids of oilseed crops. It has been suggested that the substrate preferences of endogenous acyltransferases play an important role in the… CONTINUE READING
