CRISPR Produces Camelina with Higher Oil Content
Saturday, 2024/06/22 | 06:29:48

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory used CRISPR to develop a high-oil variety of Camelina sativa. Their research may help achieve a net-zero carbon bioeconomy.


Camelina (Camelina sativa) is a close relative of canola and it is being developed to serve as a source of plant oil for the production of biofuel feedstocks. However, a yellow seed phenotype of Camelina is necessary to acquire a high oil content from the plant but it is currently unknown.


The researchers used CRISPR-Cas9 to disrupt Camelina's Transparent Testa 8 (TT8) transcription factor genes, which changed the seed coat color from brown to yellow. The results also showed a boost in fatty acid synthesis, total fatty acid (TFA) accumulation, and Triacylglycerols (TAGs). No significant changes in levels of protein and starch were observed.
