Understanding the quantitative control of fatty acid desaturation during the biosynthesis of seed storage oil has become a priority area for research, as a consequence of its importance for both human health and the substitution of mineral oil for industrial applications. We have analysed the genome structure of two mutants in Arabidopsis thaliana that show substantially elevated content of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid linolenic acid in their seed oil. In one, rfc4, sequences… CONTINUE READING
