Identification of genes in the pathway of ALA biosynthesis based on the transcriptome of Sacha Inchi. Enzymes involved in ALA biosynthesis are abbreviated as follows: ACC, acetyl-CoA carboxylase; KASI, ketoacyl-ACP Synthase I; KASII, ketoacyl-ACP Synthase II; KASIII, ketoacyl-ACP Synthase III; KAR, ketoacyl-ACP reductase; EAR, enoyl-ACP reductase; FATA, acyl-ACP thioesterase A; FATB, acyl-ACP thioesterase B; SAD, stearoyl-CoA desaturase; FAD2, fatty acid desaturase 2; FAD3, fatty acid desaturase 3; FAD6, fatty acid desaturase 6; FAD7, fatty acid desaturase7; FAD8, fatty acid desaturase 8. Enzymes coded by identified genes are shown in red boxes. This figure was constructed according to the KEGG pathway of ALA metabolism reference pathway (
