Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract A comparative study was made of the fatty acid composition of the total lipids extracted from the cotyledons and the callus cultures derived from cotyledon segments of six species of Cucurbitaceae. Conditions for callus induction and growth of cultures were identical. The difference between the two systems was in the reversal of the ratio of total unsaturated to saturated acids in all callus cultures. In callus cultures, instead of linoleic, linolenic was the major unsaturated fatty acid. In Momordica charantia, α-elaeostearic acid present in the cotyledon was not detected in callus and oleic acid was the major unsaturated fatty acid. © 1983.
