FA biosynthesis pathway is transcriptionally downregulated during N starvation. a Schematic view of the reaction steps for FA biosynthesis and the enzymes that catalyze them. b Expression profile for transcripts encoding enzymes highlighted in (a). c Absolute expression values for FA biosynthesis transcripts in log10 FPKM (open bars represent absolute expression level at time t = 0 while solid bars represent levels at t = 8 h).
