Triacylglycerol biosynthesis pathway reconstructed based on the de novo assembly and annotation of D. tertiolecta transcriptome. Identified and unidentified enzymes are shown in solid and dashed boxes, respectively, and include: GK, glycerol kinase (EC: 18.104.22.168); GPAT, glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase (EC: 22.214.171.124); AGPAT, 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase (EC:126.96.36.199); PP, phosphatidate phosphatase (EC: 188.8.131.52); DGAT, diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (EC: 184.108.40.206); and PDAT, phopholipid:diacyglycerol acyltransferase (EC 220.127.116.11). Key enzymes are shown with an asterisk next to the boxes, and dashed arrows denote reaction(s) in which the enzymes are not shown.
