The natural genetic variation of the fatty-acyl composition of seed oils in different ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana.

Author information

  • 1Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.


The fatty-acyl composition of the seed oil was determined for 100 ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana. Despite coming from diverse geographical locations, seed fatty-acyl profiles of all ecotypes were remarkably similar. They contained identical fatty acids, including the characteristic C20 and C22 very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs). The total proportions of seed VLCFA varied between 22% and 35% w/w of the total seed fatty acid content.
