In an effort to produce ricinoleic acid (RA), an important natural raw material with great values as a petrochemical replacement, in Schizosaccharomyces pombe, we introduced Claviceps purpurea oleate Δ12-hydroxylase gene (CpFAH12) to S. pombe, putting it under the control of...

This study showed the interference of esters extracted from Ricinus communis in the secretory cycle of salivary glands of Rhipicephalus sanguineus ticks, which consequently caused collateral effects on their feeding process. Ticks attached on hosts which were fed with commercial...

In an effort to produce ricinoleic acid (12-hydroxy-octadeca-cis-9-enoic acid: C18:1-OH) as a petrochemical replacement in a variety of industrial processes, we introduced Claviceps purpurea oleate ∆12-hydroxylase gene (CpFAH12) to Schizosaccharomyces pombe, putting it under the control of inducible nmt1 promoter....
