Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract There are 20 saturated and unsaturated fatty acids in the pericarp and the seed of the avocado-pear. The most important are the palmitic, palmitoleic, oleic and linoleic acids. These 4 acids represent more than 95% of the total acid content of the pericarp. The mesocarp and endocarp phospholipids (insoluble in acetone at 0[degree]C) are richer in palmitic acid. There is a nonidentlfied long-chain polar acid in their composition. The following very long-chain acids occur in the waxes of the exocarp: behenic, lignoceric and cerotic acids. Both glycerids and phospholipids of the seed have a high linoleic acid content. || ABSTRACT AUTHORS: Author
