During development of sesame Dan-Baek seeds, changes in lipid, protein and RNA levels were determined. A rapid increase in total lipids commenced at 15 days after flowering (DAF) and continued to 38 DAF. Thereafter a gradual rise was found and finally the lipids accumulated as storage lipids. A sudden increase in proteins was observed at 12 DAF, then the protein built up until the seeds matured completely, and in general the changing pattern of proteins was coincident with that of lipids.
