Transgenic (DesA-LicBM3) potato (Solanum tuberosum L., cv. Desnitsa) plants expressing gene encoding Δ12 acyl-lipid desaturase from Synechosystis sp. PCC 6803 were obtained. A significant increase in the relative content of polyunsaturated (linoleic and linolenic) fatty acids in transformants as compared with original genotype was demonstrated. The improved resistance of transgenic plants to late blight causal agent (Phytophthora infestans) as compared with original cultivar was observed.
