Interspecific hybridization offers potential to improve the hydroxy fatty acid (HFA) content of lesquerella. Lesquerella fendleri is currently being developed for cultivation as a potential new industrial oilseed crop because of its seed productivity. However, it has lower HFA content compared to L. pallida and L. lindheimeri. The objectives of this research were to improve the HFA oil content of L. fenderi through interspecific hybridization and to characterize hybrids and successive… Expand

Tables from this paper

Variation of seed oil composition in parent and S1 generations of Lesquerella fendleri (Brassicaceae)
TLDR
A half seed method of fatty acid analysis adapted for Lesquerella fendleri, where the mean seed weight is 0.006 g, when compared to a bulk seed method (BSM) shows that much diversity actually exists, especially for lesquerolic acid. Expand
Germplasm Improvement to Develop Commercially Viable Lines of the New Oilseed Crop Lesquerella
TLDR
Improved germplasm released by the USDA with higher oil content and seed yield, enhanced oil profile, abiotic stress tolerance, and harvest index are released which can be directly utilized for commercial production or used for crop improvement. Expand
Temperature and elevation effects on plant growth, development, and seed production of two Lesquerella species
TLDR
Results indicate that production areas for L. fendleri is suitable for production in areas below 700 m, and may be expanded with the introgression of genes from L. pallida aff. Expand
Hydroxy fatty acid synthesis and lipid gene expression during seed development in Lesquerella fendleri
TLDR
This study investigated the fatty acid composition and lipid gene expression pattern in developing seeds of L. fendleri from 7 days after pollination to desiccation and showed that accumulation of 20:1OH started at 21 DAP, increased quickly between 21 and 35 DAP and reached a plateau, about 50–55% of total lipids, at 35–49 DAP.

Lesquerella: New crop development and commercialization in the U.S
While Lesquerella fendleri Gray (Wats.) is not yet a commercial crop, its history serves as a model for new crop development. The most important characteristic is the absence of any significantExpand
Lesquerella: New crop development and commercialization in the U.S.
TLDR
The improvements in agronomics, breeding, genetics, and the expansion of new markets started in the 1980's, and has made lesquerella a viable potential crop that could utilize thousands of hectares in arid climates of the world provided research continues. Expand
Relationships between reproductive output, morpho-physiological traits and life span in Lesquerella (Brassicaceae)
TLDR
Differences in plant strategies among perennial Lesquerella show that there are different combinations of traits that could be used as criteria for the selection of a perennial crop in programs of domestication for Patagonia and others arid lands. Expand
Identification of hydroxy fatty acid and triacylglycerol metabolism-related genes in lesquerella through seed transcriptome analysis
TLDR
A lesquerella seed transcriptome is built that provides a valuable reference in addition to the castor database for discovering genes involved in the synthesis of triacylglycerols enriched with hydroxy fatty acids. Expand
New Crops Breeding: Lesquerella
Lesquerella species contain a seed oil which is approximately 55% lesquerolic acid, a 20-carbon long fatty acid with a single hydroxyl group and double bond, and has a similar hydroxy fatty acidExpand
Allocation patterns and phenology in wild and selected accessions of annual and perennial Physaria (Lesquerella, Brassicaceae)
TLDR
It is proposed that the changes in phenology and allocation brought about by selection will depend on the life cycle, and a trade off between seed yield potential and yield stability resulted in lower performance of selected accessions in low quality environments in relation to their wild relatives.

Very long chain and hydroxylated fatty acids in offspring of somatic hybrids between Brassica napus and Lesquerella fendleri
TLDR
Offspring of somatic hybrids between the zero-erucic acid rapeseed cv Hanna and Lesquerella fendleri were analysed regarding their fatty acid profiles and the presence of the hydroxylase gene was observed in the F6 generation of Line 1 according to Southern-blot analysis. Expand
Metabolism of Hydroxy Fatty Acids in Developing Seeds in the Genera Lesquerella (Brassicaceae) and Linum (Linaceae)
TLDR
To investigate the biochemistry of HFA production in Lesquerella species, the conversion of putative radiolabeled intermediates of H FA biosynthesis was examined in developing embryos of L. fendleri, L.kathryn, and L. auriculata, and it was notable that 18:1OH and 18:2OH were found in low and high linolenic flax seeds, respectively. Expand
Genetic control of fatty acid biosynthesis in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)
TLDR
Observations indicated that eicosenoic and erucic acids were formed by a genetically controlled carbon chain lengthening system operating by the addi-tion of acetate molecules to the carboxyl end of oleic acid. Expand
Production of intertribal somatic hybrids between Brassica napus L. and Lesquerella fendleri (Gray) Wats
TLDR
X-ray irradiation of L. fendleri protoplasts increased the possibility of obtaining mature somatic hybrid plants with improved fertility and revealed a biased segregation that favoured B. napus organelles in the hybrids from the asymmetric fusion experiments. Expand
Collection and evaluation of new Lesquerella and Physaria germplasm
TLDR
It is believed that other species of Lesquerella and Physaria could later be developed as a source of HFA in regions other than the arid southwestern United States. Expand
Variation of prezygotic barriers in the interspecific hybridization between oilseed rape and wild radish
TLDR
The results suggest that the rate of interspecific hybridization in the field would depend upon the oilseed rape cultivar and the genotype composition of the local wild populations. Expand
Maternal Effect on Fatty Acid Composition and Oil Content of Soybeans, Glycine max (L.) Merrill 1
TLDR
The results indicate that selection for oil content or for unsaturated fatty acids based on individual F₂ seed analysis would be ineffective in soybeans, with the possible exception of linolenic acid. Expand
Registration of WCL‐LY2 High Oil Lesquerella fendleri Germplasm
TLDR
WCL-LO3 has an improved oil concentration, harvest index, and seed yield compared to previously released germplasm, and should be suitable for geographic regions similar to the arid southwestern USA. Expand
Lesquerella commercialization efforts in the United States
Abstract Lesquerella fendleri (Gray) Wats. is a promising new crop for cultivation in the western United States. Its oil-bearing seed contains high amounts of the hydroxy fatty acid (HFA),Expand
Desaturation of oxygenated fatty acids in Lesquerella and other oil seeds
TLDR
It was demonstrated that developing linseed also was able to desaturate ricinoleate at position Δ15 into densipolic acid, and hydroxy and epoxy groups may substitute for double bonds in substrate recognition for oil-seed Δ12 and Δ15 desaturases. Expand
