Tocochromanols (tocopherols and tocotrienols) are important lipid soluble antioxidants and are an essential part of the mammalian diet. Oilseeds are particularly rich in tocochromanols with an average concentration 10-fold higher than other plant tissues. Here we describe a systematic approach to identify rate-limiting reactions in the tocochromanol biosynthetic pathway, and the application of this knowledge to engineer tocochromanol biosynthesis in oilseed crops. Seed-specific expression of… CONTINUE READING
