Genes for microsomal delta-12 fatty acid desaturases and hydroxylases from plants



Genes for microsomal delta-12 fatty acid desaturases and hydroxylases from plants



Official Gazette of the United States Patent and Trademark Office Patents 1257(3)



The preparation and use of nucleic acid fragments encoding fatty acid desaturase enzymes are described. The invention permits alteration of plant lipid composition. Chimeric genes incorporating such nucleic acid fragments with suitable regulatory sequences may be used to create transgenic plants with altered levels of unsaturated fatty acids.
