A full-length cDNA of an acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) thioesterase (TE) (EC 3.1.2.14), named JcFATB1, was isolated from the woody oil plant Jatropha curcas L. The deduced amino acid sequence of the cDNA shares about 78% identity with FATB TEs, but only about 33% identity with FATA TEs from other plants. The deduced sequence also contains two essential residues (H(317) and C(352)) for TE catalytic activity and a putative chloroplast transit peptide at the N-terminal.
