20110225676Two Novel Alkylresorcinol Synthase Genes from Sorghum; Cloning, Expression, Transformation and Characterization - Sorghum is considered to be an allelopathic crop species, producing phytotoxins such as the lipid benzoquinone sorgoleone (2-hydroxy-5-methoxy-3-[(Z,Z)-8′,11′,14′-pentadecatriene]-p-benzoquinone) which likely accounts for much of its allelopathic properties. Prior investigations into the biosynthesis of sorgoleone have suggested the participation of one or more alkylresorcinol synthases (ARS), which are type III polyketide synthases (PKS) that produce 5-alkylresorcinols using medium to long-chain fatty acyl-CoA starter units via iterative condensations with malonyl-CoA. Current evidence suggests that sorgoleone biosynthesis occurs exclusively in root hair cells, involving the synthesis of a 5-pentadecatrienyl resorcinol intermediate derived from an unusual 16:3 fatty acyl-CoA starter unit. To characterize the enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of this alkylresorcinol intermediate, a previously-described expressed sequence tag (EST) database prepared from isolated root hairs was first mined for all PKS-like sequences. Quantitative real-time RT-PCR analyses revealed that two of these sequences were preferentially expressed in root hairs, and recombinant enzyme studies demonstrated that both sequences (designated ARS1 and ARS2) encode ARS enzymes capable of accepting a variety of fatty acyl-CoA starter units. Furthermore, RNA interference (RNAi) experiments directed against ARS1 and ARS2 resulted in the generation of multiple independent transformant events exhibiting dramatically reduced sorgoleone levels. Thus, both ARS1 and ARS2 are likely to participate in the biosynthesis of sorgoleone in planta. The sequences of ARS1 and ARS2 were also used to identify several rice genes encoding ARSs, which are likely involved in the production of defense-related alkylresorcinols.09-15-2011

20110321193Method And Compositions for the Production of Transgenic Plants - The present invention relates generally to a process of producing transgenic plants and more particularly transgenic oil palm plants carrying exogenous genetic material which confers on said plants or cells of said plants particular phenotypic traits. The present invention further provides plant parts, reproductive material and plant products from the transgenic plants. The present invention particularly provides transgenic plants and even more particularly transgenic oil plants having beneficial and useful phenotypic characteristics not present at least to the same extent in non-transgenic plants of the same species. The present invention is further directed to oil, and particularly palm oil, having beneficial and desirable characteristics, produced by the transgenic plants made in accordance with the present invention.12-29-2011
20120017332PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF ARACHIDONIC ACID AND/OR EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID - The present invention relates to a new process for the production of arachidonic acid and/or eicosapentaenoic acid in plants through the co-expression of a Δ-12-/Δ-15-desaturase, Δ-9-elongase, Δ-8-desaturase and a Δ-5-desaturase and a process for the production of lipids or oils having an increased content of unsaturated fatty acids, in particular ω-3 and ω-6 fatty acids having at least two double bonds and a 18 or 20 carbon atom chain length. Preferably the arachidonic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid are produced in at least a 1:2 ratio. The invention furthermore relates to the production of a transgenic plants, preferably a transgenic crop plant, having an increased content of arachidonic acid and/or eicosapentaenoic acid, oils or lipids containing C01-19-2012
20130198904BETA-KETOACYL ACP-SYNTHASE II (KASII) GENE FROM JESSENIA BATAUA - The present invention relates to the use of a nucleic acid fragment or part thereof encoding β-ketoacyl ACP synthase II (KASII), particularly which derived from 08-01-2013

Also provided are nucleic acid constructs comprising same, isolated polypeptides encoded thereby, transgenic cells and transgenic plants comprising same and methods of using same for increasing yield, biomass, growth rate, vigor, oil content, fiber yield, fiber quality, abiotic stress tolerance, and/or nitrogen use efficiency of a plant. Also provided are isolated polynucleotides comprising the nucleic acid sequence set forth by SEQ ID NO:8096, wherein the isolated polynucleotide is capable of regulating expression of at least one polynucleotide sequence operably linked thereto.11-22-2012
20120066794Increased Seed Oil and Abiotic Stress Tolerance Mediated by HSI2 - Increased seed oil content, decreased abscisic acid sensitivity and/or increased drought resistance in a plant may be accomplished by altering expression of a HIGH-LEVEL EXPRESSION OF SUGAR-INDUCIBLE 2 (HSI2) protein in the plant to thereby increase or decrease expression of HSI2 in the plant compared to a plant grown under similar conditions in which the expression of HSI2 was unaltered. Increasing expression of HSI2 increases oil content while decreasing expression of HSI2 decreases abscisic acid sensitivity and/or increases drought resistance.03-15-2012
20130205444DGAT GENES FROM OLEAGINOUS ORGANISMS FOR INCREASED SEED STORAGE LIPID PRODUCTION AND ALTERED FATTY ACID PROFILES IN OILSEED PLANTS - Transgenic soybean seed having increased total fatty acid content of at least 10% and altered fatty acid profiles when compared to the total fatty acid content of non-transgenic, null segregant soybean seed are described. DGAT genes from oleaginous organisms are used to achieve the increase in seed storage lipids.08-08-2013
20120096588DGAT GENES FROM OLEAGINOUS ORGANISMS FOR INCREASED SEED STORAGE LIPID PRODUCTION AND ALTERED FATTY ACID PROFILES IN OILSEED PLANTS - Transgenic soybean seed having increased total fatty acid content of at least 10% and altered fatty acid profiles when compared to the total fatty acid content of non-transgenic, null segregant soybean seed are described. DGAT genes from oleaginous organisms are used to achieve the increase in seed storage lipids.04-19-2012
