- ... Oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) is one of the most important oil crops in the tropics with special fatty acid compositions. In this paper, a cDNA sequence putatively encoding the plastidial ω6 fatty acid desaturase (FAD) which plays a key role in the linoleic acid biosynthesis, designated EgFAD6, was isolated from the mesocarp of oil palm. Sequence analysis indicated that it had an open reading ...
