Abstract:

Very long chain fatty acids (C20 and longer) are synthesized via fatty acid elongases at ER. Plastid generated C16 and C18 fatty acids and malony CoA are substrates for these elongases. The cuticular waxes are a mixture of mostly aliphatic very long chain fatty acids (VLCFA) and variable amount of triterpenoids and phenyl propanoids. Cuticle is composed of inter-esterification of ω and mid chain hydroxy and epoxy C16 and C18 fatty acids and glycerol, and cuticular waxes. Our GC-MS data exhibit that VLCFA synthesis in drought tolerant wheat cultivar (C306) is indicator of retention of fatty acid synthesis and elongation ability in contrast to HD2428 drought sensitive wheat cultivar under drought due to unfavourable radiation and temperature.
