Table II. Fatty acid profiles of leaf total fatty acid (L), leaf TAG (L-TAG), root total fatty acid (R), and root TAG (R-TAG) from material harvested 35 DAS

Values represent mean percentages of total fatty acids ± sd from separate analysis (n = 6 for total fatty acid profiling in both leaves and roots, n = 4 for TAG profiling in both leaves and roots). Parentheses show P values for statistical significance between the transgenic line and the wild type calculated by Student’s two-tailed t test. nd, Not detected; ns, not significant.
