Plastidic acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase) regulates the rate of fatty acid synthesis. This enzyme is composed of biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP), biotin carboxylase (BC), and carboxyltransferase (CT), which consists of α and β subunits. Among these components, CTβ is encoded by the plastidic genome. In Arabidopsis, BC and CTα are each encoded by a single gene, and there are two genes for BCCP, BCCP1 and BCCP2. Promoter analysis revealed that the 5′-UTR containing the AW box is necessary… CONTINUE READING
