  1. The values represent means and standard deviation of four independent samples
  2. FA fatty acid, WT wild type, KS/kasI kasI mutant complementation line, OE overexpression lines, UFA unsaturated fatty acid, SFA saturated fatty acid, US/S refers to the ratio of unsaturated/saturated FA
  3. The asterisk indicates significant difference in fatty acids composition between transgenic plants and WT (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01)
