Adhesive performance of camelina protein affected by extraction conditions – G. Qi, N. Li, D. Wang, and X.S. Sun – American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2016

Adhesive performance of camelina protein affected by extraction conditions – G. Qi, N. Li, D. Wang, and X.S. Sun – American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2016 Summary: Camelina protein (CP) adhesives were prepared from de-hulled camelina meal using alkaline solubilization (CP 8, CP 9, CP 10, CP 11, CP 12) and isolelectric precipitation. CP 12 had the highest ...

Camelina as a sustainable oilseed crop: Contributions of plant breeding and genetic engineering – J. Vollmann, C. Eynck – Biotechnology Journal February 2015

Summary: Camelina is an underutilized Brassicaceae oilseed plant with a considerable agronomic potential for biofuel and vegetable oil production in temperate regions. In contrast to most Brassicaceae, camelina is resistant to alternaria black spot and other diseases and pests. Sequencing of the camelina genome revealed an undifferentiated allohexaploid genome with a comparatively large number of genes and low percentage of ...

Intertribal somatic hybrids between Brassica napus and Camelina sativa with high linolenic acid content – J.J. Jiang, X.X. Zhao, W. Tian, T.B. Li, and Y. P. Wang – Plant Cell Tissue and Organ Culture 2009

Summary: Protoplast electrofusion was used to create intertribal hybrids of Brassica napus and Camelina sativa. Seeds of hybrids had a modified fatty acid profile, indicating higher level of linolenic and eicosanoic acids than those of B. napus. Our results suggest that somatic hybridization offers opportunities for transferring entire genomes between B. napus and C. sativa in breeding for rapeseed improvement. ...

Overexpression of Arabidopsis MYB96 confers drought resistance in Camelina sativa via cuticular wax accumulation – S.B Lee, H. Kim, R.J. Kim, and M.C. Suh – Plant Cell Reports – 2014

Summary: Transgenic Camelina plants overexpressing Arabidopsis MYB96 exhibited drought resistance by activating expression of Camelina wax biosynthetic genes and accumulating wax load. The results indicate that MYB96-mediated transcriptional regulation of wax biosynthetic genes is an approach applicable to generating drought resistant transgenic crops. Transgenic Camelina plants with enhanced drought tolerance could be cultivated on marginal land to produce renewable biofuels ...

Over-expression of AtPAP2 in Camelina sativa leads to faster plant growth and higher seed yield – Y. Zhang, L. Yu, K.-F. Yung, D. Y.C. Leung, F. Sun, and B. L Lim – Biotechnology for Biofuels – 2012

Summary: Under controlled environmental conditions, overexpression of AtPAP2 in Camelina sativa resulted in longer hypocotyls, earlier flowering, faster growth rate, higher photosynthetic rate and stomatal conductance, increased seed yield and seed size in comparison with the wild-type line and null-lines. Similar to transgenic Arabidopsis, activity of sucrose phosphate synthase in leaves of transgenic Camelina was also significantly up-regulated. Changes in ...
