    The lipid and fatty acid composition of the blue mussels Mytilus edulis L. gills and digestive glands was evaluated after 24 and 72 h of cadmium (Cd) and copper (Cu) exposure. Mussels were exposed to different cadmium (10, 100, and 500 μg/L) and copper (5, 50, and 250 μg/L) concentrations....

    With rare exceptions, dicot plastids have been reported to contain only a multisubunit (prokaryotic) form of acetyl-coA carboxylase (ACCase), the first committed step of lipid biosynthesis. The sensitivity of most monocots to cyclohexanediones (CHDs) such as sethoxydim, has been shown to be...

    The substrate specificity of the acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) thioesterases significantly determines the type of fatty acids that are exported from plastids. Thus, designing acyl-ACP thioesterases with different substrate specificities or kinetic properties would be of interest for plant...
