Abstract

See full text

This invention relates to a method for increasing stearate as a component of total triglycerides found in soybean seed. The method generally comprises growing a soybean plant having integrated into its genome a DNA construct comprising, in the 5′ to 3′ direction of transcription, a promoter functional in a soybean plant seed cell, a DNA sequence encoding an acyl-ACP thioesterase protein having substantial activity on C18:0 acyl-ACP substrates, and a transcription termination region functional in a plant cell. The present invention also provides a soybean seed with about 33 weight percent or greater stearate as a component of total fatty acids found in seed triglycerides.
