  • Patent number: 6093568
    Abstract: This invention relates to plant LPAATs, means to identify such proteins, amino acid and nucleic acid sequences associated with such protein, and methods to obtain, make and/or use such plant LPAATs. Purification, especially the removal of plant membranes and the substantial separation away from other plant proteins, and use of the plant LPAAT is provided, including the use of the protein as a tool in gene isolation for biotechnological applications. In addition, nucleic acid sequences encoding LPAAT protein regions are provided, and uses of such sequences for isolation of LPAAT genes from plants are considered.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: April 21, 1994
    Date of Patent: July 25, 2000
    Assignee: Calgene, Inc.
    Inventors: Huw Maelor Davies, Deborah Hawkins, Janet Nelsen
