The ratios of oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids to each other are important to the economic and nutritional value of the nut.
Oleic acid content of genotype kernels with dark color (C and hdeg values are low) were the lowest but the linolenic acid contents of them were the highest.
Reduction of linolenic acid concentration in seed oils has been produced by genetic modifications in the desaturation step from linoleic acid to linolenic acid, controlled by linoleate or [omega]-3 fatty acid desaturases.
The line AB-1 has a high concentration of oleic acid and a low concentration of linolenic acid in the seed oil (Velasco et al.
Maternal effects on the oleic, linoleic, and linolenic acid
content of rapeseed oil.
The additive nature of the fan allele with the fap alleles and the lack of interaction between palmitic and linolenic acids made it possible to combine these traits in the line RG1.
However, it has also been reported that decreases in palmitic and linolenic acids do not significantly reduce seed yield (Horejsi et al.
Although the genotype x location and genotype x year x location effects for oleic, linoleic, and linolenic acids
were significant, the variance components for these effects were small in comparison to year and genotype x year variances.
A single gene model was used to evaluate the segregation ratio for oleic and linolenic acids
individually in [F.
For plant height and lodging, linoleic and linolenic acid
content, and visual seed quality, the selected group contained the five lowest lines.
However, rapeseed and soybean oils are relatively high in linolenic acid
(18:3) (80-120 g [kg.
