The cultivated peanut is a valuable source of dietary oil and ranks fifth among the world oil crops. Plant fatty acid biosynthesis is catalysed by type II fatty acid synthase (FAS) in plastids and mitochondria. By constructing a full-length cDNA library derived from immature peanut seeds and homology-based cloning, candidate genes of acyl carrier protein (ACP), malonyl-CoA:ACP transacylase, β-ketoacyl-ACP synthase (I, II, III), β-ketoacyl-ACP reductase, β-hydroxyacyl-ACP dehydrase and enoyl-ACP… CONTINUE READING
