  • Patent number: 10975380
    Abstract: The present invention relates to Brassica sequences comprising early stage seed-specific and endosperm-preferential promoter activity. Provided are recombinant genes comprising the early stage seed-specific and endosperm-preferential promoter operably linked to a heterologous nucleic acid sequence, and cells, plants and seeds comprising the recombinant gene. The promoters can be used to alter gene expression specifically in the seeds at early developmental stages and preferentially in the endosperm and to alter biotic or abiotic stress tolerance, yield, seed quality or seed properties.

  • Patent number: 10494642
    Abstract: The present invention relates to Brassica plants comprising mutant FAD2 genes, FAD2 nucleic acid sequences and proteins, as well as methods for generating and identifying said plants and alleles, which can be used to plants with increased levels of C18:1 in the seed oil.
