Modification of Fatty Acids by Genetic Engineering
The oils derived from temperate oilseeds have a fairly narrow range of fatty acid distribution. With the exception of the crucifers, most have oils that predominantly consist of C18-fatty acids with varying degrees of desaturation. Although common in tropical oilseeds and many wild species, fatty acids with shorter than 16-carbon chain length are virtually absent from temperate oilseeds.
