Fatty acid ω-3 desaturase (FAD) is the key enzyme catalyzing the formation of trienoic fatty acids. We utilized an Arabidopsis FAD7 gene and the seven independent transgenic rice plants harbouring 1 to 3 copies of this gene were generated. The expression of FAD7 mRNA was different among independent transgenic lines regardless of the copy number. The total… CONTINUE READING
