Regulation of membrane fatty acid composition by temperature in mutants of Arabidopsis with alterations in membrane lipid composition


A wide range of cellular responses occur when plants are exposed to elevated temperature, including adjustments in the unsaturation level of membrane fatty acids. Although membrane bound desaturase enzymes mediate these adjustments, it is unknown how they are regulated to achieve these specific membrane compositions. Furthermore, the precise roles that… (More)
