Acyl and alcohol moiety profiles of seed WE from MaFAR/MaWSD2, clMaFAR/clMaWSD2, MaFAR/MaWSD5 and clMaFAR/clMaWSD5. Acyl (a) and alcohol (b) moiety profiles were obtained by GC-FID analysis. Relative abundances of WE moieties are displayed in mol%. Combined relative abundances of acyl (c) and alcohol (d) moieties with similar chain length or desaturation degree were attained by summing up relative abundances of respective moieties. Each bar represents the mean of three independent plant lines per construct determined in three extraction replicates (+‚ÄČSD). For better visibility minor fatty acids showing significant changes are shown as insets with a different scale. ANOVA analysis followed by post hoc Tukey test was performed separately for each acyl and alcohol moiety as well as each chain length and double bond number (n.s.: not significant). For p-values of the ANOVA analysis, see Additional file 6. For the data from each plant line, see Additional file 5. The raw data are provided in Additional file 4
