From: High oil accumulation in tuber of yellow nutsedge compared to purple nutsedge is associated with more abundant expression of genes involved in fatty acid synthesis and triacylglycerol storage

Expression patterns for genes related to triacylglycerol synthesis. a Schematic of triacylglycerol (TAG) synthesis pathways. Gene names are indicated in blue color. b Average transcript levels for TAG synthesis genes in two nutsedges. The data are averaged on all three developing stages of tubers. The transcript values for subunits of a protein or for multiple isoforms were summed. c Temporal transcripts for DGAT and PDAT enzymes during tuber development. CPT, Diacylglycerol cholinephosphotransferase; DAG, Diacylglyceol; DGAT, Acyl-CoA:Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase; FAD2, Oleate desaturase, Fatty acid desaturase 2; G3P, Glycerol-3-Phosphate; GPAT, Glycerol-3-Phosphate Acyltransferase; GPDH, NAD-dependent Glycerol-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase; LPA, lysophosphatidic Acid; LPAAT, 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; LPC, lysophosphatidylcholine; LPCAT, 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphocholine Acyltransferase; PA, Phosphatidic Acid; PAP, Phosphatidic Acid Phosphohydrolase; PC, Phosphatidylcholine; PDAT, Phospholipid:Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase; PDCT, Phosphatidylcholine:diacylglycerol cholinephosphotransferase;
