Multiple mechanisms contribute to increased neutral lipid accumulation in yeast producing recombinant variants of plant diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1Download
The apparent bottleneck in the accumulation of oil during seed development in some oleaginous plant species is the formation of triacylglycerol (TAG) by the acyl-CoA-dependent acylation of sn-1,2- diacylglycerol catalyzed by diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT, EC 188.8.131.52). Improving DGAT...
Monoamine oxidase enzymes are largely involved in the catabolism of biogenic amines. Two forms of the enzyme are socumented to exist, monoamine oxidase type A and B. The B form (MAO-B) of the enzyme has been noted to possess a high affinity site for some imidazoline ligands. This site (the I2...
Quantitatively, nitrogen (N) has shown to be one of the most important nutrients for proper plant growth and development, and a key limiting factor in crop productivity. In the last 40 years, there has been a significant increase in the production of synthetic N-fertilizers, as well as an...
