Hormonal regulation of tissue-specific ectopic expression of an Arabidopsis endoplasmic reticulum-type ω-3 fatty acid desaturase (FAD3) gene


A common feature of the membrane lipids of higher plants is a large content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which typically consist of dienoic and trienoic fatty acids. Two types of ω-3 fatty acid desaturase, which are present in the plastids and in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), respectively, are responsible for the conversion of dienoic to trienoic fatty… (More)
