Changes in Oil Content of Transgenic Soybeans Expressing the Yeast SLC1 Gene

  title={Changes in Oil Content of Transgenic Soybeans Expressing the Yeast SLC1 Gene},
  author={Suryadevara S. Rao and David F. Hildebrand},
The wild type (Wt) and mutant form of yeast (sphingolipid compensation) genes, SLC1 and SLC1-1, have been shown to have lysophosphatidic acid acyltransferase (LPAT) activities (Nageic et al. in J Biol Chem 269:22156–22163, 1993). Expression of these LPAT genes was reported to increase oil content in transgenic Arabidopsis and Brassica napus. It is of interest to determine if the TAG content increase would also be seen in soybeans. Therefore, the wild type SLC1 was expressed in soybean somatic… CONTINUE READING
