Very-long-chain fatty acid biosynthesis is controlled through the expression and specificity of the condensing enzyme.


The Arabidopsis FATTY ACID ELONGATION1 (FAE1) gene encodes a putative seed-specific condensing enzyme. It is the first of four enzyme activities that comprise the microsomal fatty acid elongase (FAE) involved in the biosynthesis of very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs). FAE1 has been expressed in yeast and in tissues of Arabidopsis and tobacco, where… (More)
