All plant cells produce fatty acids from acetyl-CoA by a common pathway localized in plastids. Although the biochemistry of this pathway is now well understood, much less is known about how plants control the very different amounts and types of lipids produced in different tissues. Thus, a central challenge for plant lipid research is to provide a molecular understanding of how plants regulate the major differences in lipid metabolism found, for example, in mesophyll, epidermal, or developing… Expand
Transcriptional regulation of fatty acid production in higher plants: Molecular bases and biotechnological outcomes
TLDR
The fatty acid biosynthetic pathway is indeed subjected to a system of global transcriptional control that coordinates the expression of most genes encoding enzymes of the pathway, which establishes the importance of transcriptional regulation for modulating the rate of fatty acid production. Expand
New insights on the organization and regulation of the fatty acid biosynthetic network in the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
Recent discoveries regarding the post-translational regulation of the pathway open new research horizons and may guide the development of relevant biotechnological strategies aimed at monitoring FA production in plant systems. Expand
Regulation of de novo fatty acid synthesis in maturing oilseeds of Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Although much remains to be elucidated, the framework of the regulatory system controlling fatty acid biosynthesis in Arabidopsis seeds is coming into focus. Expand
Chapter 4 Lipid metabolism in plants
TLDR
Recent advances in analytical techniques should help to enter a new stage of lipid research emphasizing the interplay between metabolic compartments and the control of lipid synthesis during the plant life cycle. Expand
AtMYB92 enhances fatty acid synthesis and suberin deposition in leaves of Nicotiana benthamiana.
TLDR
The identification of another activator of the fatty acid biosynthetic pathway, the Arabidopsis MYB92 transcription factor, is described, providing additional insight into the molecular mechanisms that control the biosynthesis of an important cell wall-associated acylglycerol polymer playing critical roles in plants. Expand
Lipid metabolism in plants
Plants produce the majority of the world's lipids, and most animals, including humans, depend on these lipids as a major source of calories and essential fatty acids. Like other eukaryotes, plantsExpand
Control analysis of lipid biosynthesis in tissue cultures from oil crops shows that flux control is shared between fatty acid synthesis and lipid assembly.
TLDR
The present study represents the first use of TDCA to examine the overall lipid biosynthetic pathway in any tissue, and its findings are of immediate academic and economic relevance to the yield and nutritional quality of oil crops. Expand
Microalgal lipid biosynthesis: phylogeny of acetyl-CoA carboxylase and gene expression patterns of key enzymes
TLDR
Heteromeric and homomeric ACCase amino acid sequences obtained from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and the Joint Genomic Institute (JGI) were synthesized with taxonomic data and elucidated that the presence of heteromeric or homomerIC ACCase is dependent on the origin of the plastid.

RECENT ADVANCES IN ACETYL COA CARBOXYLASE ; A KEY ENZYME OF FATTY ACID BIOSYNTHESIS IN PLANTS
The first committed step in the lipid biosynthesis is the ATP dependent carboxylation of Acetyl-CoA to malonyl-CoA. This reaction is catalyzed by an enzyme acetyl CoA carboxylase, a key regulatoryExpand

The Compartmentation of Acetyl-Coenzyme A Carboxylase in Plants
TLDR
There is a major cell biological difference between these two groups of eukaryotes, in plants, the major site of fatty acid synthesis is the plastid, an organelle absent from the animal cell. Expand
Analysis of the Arabidopsis Enoyl-ACP Reductase Promoter in Transgenic Tobacco
TLDR
To identify cis-acting elements, which allow trans-acting transcriptional control elements to coordinate the expression of the enr gene with that of other FAS components during life cycle of the plant, fusing specific regions of the Arabidopsis enr promoter to the uidA reporter gene and analysing the GUS activity in transgenic tobacco are attempted.

Feedback inhibition of fatty acid synthesis in tobacco suspension cells
TLDR
Analysis of tobacco cell acyl-ACP intermediates indicated that acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase) was centrally involved in the feedback regulation of fatty acid synthesis, indicating that the feedback inhibition of fatty Acid Synthesis in plant cells occurs through biochemical or post-translational modification of ACCase and possibly other fatty Acid synthesis enzymes.
