Significant advances in our knowledge of fatty acid breakdown in plants have been made since the subject was last comprehensively reviewed in the early 1990s. Many of the genes encoding the enzymes of peroxisomal beta-oxidation of straight chain fatty acids have now been identified. Biochemical genetic approaches in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, have been particularly useful not only in the identification and functional characterisation of genes involved in fatty acid beta-oxidation… CONTINUE READING
