  • Arabidopsis plants with a two-fold increase in total lipid content in their leaves have been obtained with CRISPR-Cas9 by scientists from the UK. The feat is achieved by using two gRNAs to delete a non-essential intergenic sequence between an upstream strong promoter and the coding region of diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (DGAT2) that has a relatively weak promoter. The authors suggest that the approach could be used in forage crops like perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) to enhance livestock productivity and reduce enteric methane emissions in pasture-based ruminant farming systems.
