Functional and bioinformatic characterisation of sequence variants of Fad3 gene from flax.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Desaturases are enzymes that drive the multi-step fatty acid biosynthetic pathway. As evident from directed mutagenesis, single base changes in their polypeptide can potentially alter their structure and may result in altered substrate specificity, regioselectivity and even loss of function. The authors have previously isolated several sequence… (More)
