Fatty acid composition of lipids from the vacuolar membranes of the roots of root vegetables

Fatty acid composition of lipids from the vacuolar membranes of the roots of root vegetables The fatty acid (FA) composition of vacuolar membrane lipids from the storage tissues of parsnip (Pastinaca sativa L.), parsley (Petroselinum crispum L.), and carrot (Daucus carota L.) was studied by gasliquid chromatography, and possible pathways of the biosynthesis of these acids are considered. A high level of unsaturated FAs (up to 78% of the total FA amount) was characteristic of these membrane lipids with the predominance of linoleic acid, which content in vacuolar lipids of parsnip, parsley, and carrot was 53.5, 55.1, and 54.4%, respectively. A high content of hexadienoic acid (C16:2ω6) was characteristic of the vacuolar lipids of parsnip and parsley (8.0 and 4.6%. respectively); the content of α-linolenic acid in the vacuolar lipids of these plants was 4.4–7.3%. Palmitic acid predominated among the saturated FAs (18.0–20.4%). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
