Contributors: Z. Hu n, Q. Wu n, J. Dalal n, N. Vasani n, H. Lopez n, H. Sederoff n, R. Qu n

MeSH headings : 3-Oxoacyl-(Acyl-Carrier-Protein) Synthase / deficiency; 3-Oxoacyl-(Acyl-Carrier-Protein) Synthase / genetics; Brassicaceae / genetics; Brassicaceae / metabolism; Plant Oils / metabolism; Plants, Genetically Modified; RNA Interference; Seeds / metabolism; Thiolester Hydrolases / genetics; Triglycerides / chemistry; Triglycerides / metabolism; Umbellularia / enzymology; Umbellularia / genetics
TL;DR: The results show that a California bay gene can be successfully used to modify the oil composition in camelina seed and present a new biological alternative for jet fuel production. (via Semantic Scholar)

Contributors: J. Dalal n, H. Lopez n, N. Vasani n, Z. Hu n, J. Swift n, R. Yalamanchili n, M. Dvora n, X. Lin n ...

author keywords: Camelina; Seed yield; Biofuel; Photorespiratory bypass; Photosynthesis
TL;DR: By reducing photorespiratory losses and increasing photosynthetic CO2 fixation rates, transgenic plants show dramatic increases in seed yield, and the bypass approach may have significant impact on increasing agricultural productivity for C3 crops. (via Semantic Scholar)

Transgenic and Mutation-Based Suppression of a Berberine Bridge Enzyme-Like (BBL) Gene Family Reduces Alkaloid Content in Field-Grown Tobacco

PLOS ONE, 10(2).

By: R. Lewis n, H. Lopez n, S. Bowen n, K. Andres n, W. Steede n & R. Dewey n

MeSH headings : Alkaloids / biosynthesis; Alkaloids / chemistry; Gene Expression Regulation, Plant; Mutation; Plant Proteins / antagonists & inhibitors; Plant Proteins / genetics; Plant Proteins / metabolism; Plants, Genetically Modified / genetics; Plants, Genetically Modified / metabolism; RNA Interference; Tobacco / genetics; Tobacco / growth & development; Tobacco / metabolism
TL;DR: Transgenic doubled haploid lines of tobacco cultivar K326 carrying an RNAi construct designed to reduce expression of the BBL gene family were produced, indicating that a range of alkaloid phenotypes could be produced, with the triple homozygous knockout genotype exhibiting greater than a 13-fold reduction in percent total alkaloids.
