A Fluorescence‐Based Assay for Quantitative Analysis of Phospholipid:Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase ActivityDownload
Phospholipid:diacylglycerol acyltransferase (PDAT) catalyzes the acyl‐CoA‐independent triacylglycerol (TAG) biosynthesis in plants and oleaginous microorganisms and thus is a key target in lipid research. The conventional in vitro PDAT activity assay involves the use of radiolabeled substrates,...
Properties and Biotechnological Applications of Acyl‐CoA:diacylglycerol Acyltransferase and Phospholipid:diacylglycerol Acyltransferase from Terrestrial Plants and MicroalgaeDownload
Triacylglycerol (TAG) is the major storage lipid in most terrestrial plants and microalgae, and has great nutritional and industrial value. Since the demand for vegetable oil is consistently increasing, numerous studies have been focused on improving the TAG content and modifying the fatty‐acid...
Uncovering the Molecular Mechanisms behind Triacylglycerol Biosynthesis in Flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum L.)Download
Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) seed oil contains approximately 45%-65% of α-linolenic acid (ALA) and 15-29 % of linoleic acid (LA), and is one of the richest natural sources of these polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Due to its high amounts of PUFAs, especially ALA, flax oil has a number of...
