The oleate desaturase gene (E12) from Brassica napus in expresses in the anti-sense orientation leading to the inhibition of the desaturation of oleic acid (C18:1) to linoleic acid (C18:2) in the genetically modified oilseed rape plants.

As a result, the oleic acid content is increased in the seeds, while the linoleic and linolenic acid content is reduced.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
Brassica napus - Turnip, Rapeseed, Canola Plant, Oilseed Rape, Rape, BRANA
