Vegetable oils are a major source of essential fatty acids in the human nutrition.Their major components are triacylglycerol(TAG)in which fatty acids are esterified to the hydroxyl groups of the glycerol backbone.A wealth of recent studies has shed lights on the seed oil production and fatty acid compositions.In this review,we describe the identified enzymes involved in TAG synthesis pathways,genetic engineering to manipulate genes encoding these proteins.
