Abbadi and coworkers (2004) have produced linseed and tobacco plants that synthesize VLCPUFA in their seed by introducing genes for fatty-acyl desaturases and elongases obtained from a variety of organisms that produce VLCPUFAs. The best results were obtained using plant and algal gene sequences. The transgenic plants accumulated significant levels of the VLCPUFAs (5% of C20 VLCPUFA including AA and EPA) in their seed. , 2004). This achievement holds promise for the production of healthier and more nutritious oils for human consumption.
