Expression of Mouse MGAT in Arabidopsis Results in Increased Lipid Accumulation in Seeds

Abstract

Worldwide demand for vegetable oil is projected to double within the next 30 years due to increasing food, fuel, and industrial requirements. There is therefore great interest in metabolic engineering strategies that boost oil accumulation in plant tissues, however, efforts to date have only achieved levels of storage lipid accumulation in plant tissues far… (More)
