Down-Regulation of CELLULOSE SYNTHASE Expression in Arabidopsis Seeds as a Possible Means of Increasing Seed Oil and Protein Content, and Reducing Fibre ContentDownload
Oleaginous seeds, with higher oil and protein content, have higher economic value in the seed oil industry. Meal resulting from the seed oil extraction process is a widely used protein source in animal feed. The reduction of the complex fibre component of seed tissues may direct more carbon into...
Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase (LACS, EC 188.8.131.52) catalyzes the ATP-dependent activation of free fatty acid to form acyl-CoA, which in turn serves as the major acyl donor for various lipid metabolic pathways. Increasing the size of acyl-CoA pool by enhancing LACS activity appears to be a useful...
Oxygen deprivation (hypoxia and anoxia) is an environmental stress affecting plants worldwide in many natural and man-made ecosystems. Aquaporins exhibit multiple physiological functions in challenging environments. The central role of aquaporins in plant water relations has been widely...
