Using water as a medium for selling natural reactions has been quite overlooked within the improvement of natural synthesis, although it's the solvent during which just about all biochemical strategies ensue. Chemists have only in the near past began to savour the large strength water has to provide within the improvement of latest artificial reactions and methods, the place it could actually provide merits in either special chemistry and lowered environmental impression.

2, detailed analysis of the TAG species produced by the FAH12/RcDGAT2 (Ricinus communis DGAT2) double-transgenic lines showed that castor DGAT2 coexpression dramatically shifted the TAG fatty acid profile toward lipid species containing two or more HFAs; the FAH12/RcDGAT2 double-transgenic plants contain higher levels of all eight major TAG species present in native castor oil (including triricindein) than do the FAH12 single transgenics. The preference of castor DGAT2 for ricinoleic acid-containing substrates was demonstrated directly by enzyme assay after overexpression in yeast.
