As special maize with more than 6% oil concentration in the grain, high-oil maize has received increased interest recently. To date, little is known about the expressions of genes involved in fatty acid metabolism of high-oil maize. Stearoyl-acyl carrier protein desaturase (SAD) is a key enzyme that converts stearic acid to oleic acid. In this study, two-dimensional electrophoresis, gas chromatography, and real-time PCR were used to determine the expressions of SAD at three seed development… CONTINUE READING
