Phylogenetic comparison of safflower CtFAD2 gene family and orthologous FAD2s from other plants. The phylogenetic tree was generated by Vector NTI (invitrogen). Included in the alignment were FAD2 desaturases (DES), hydroxylases (OH), epoxygenases (EPOX), acetylenases (ACET), and conjugases (CONJ). The GenBank accession numbers of the amino acid sequences represented in the phylogenetic tree are: atDES, AAM61113.1; lcDES, ACR15954.1; pfOH:DES, AAC32755.1; plOH, ABQ01458.1; coCONJ, AAK26632.1; haACET, ABC59684.1; rhACET, AAO38035.1; dsACET, AAO38036.1; caACET, ABC00769.1; cpEPOX, CAA76156.1; slEPOX, AAR23815.1; dcACET, AAO38033.1; dcDES:OH, AAK30206.1; fvACET,AAO38034.1; hhACET, AAO38031.1; boDES, AAC31698.1; haDES-2, AAL68982.1; haDES-3, AAL68983.1; haDES-1, AAL68981.1; ntDES, AAT72296.2; oeDES, AAW63040; siDES, AAF80560.1; ghDES-1, CAA65744.1; ptDES, XP_002297660.1; rcOH, AAC49010.1; cpDES, AAS19533.1; ghDES-4, AAQ16653.1; ghDES-2, CAA71199.1; jcDES, ADB93805.1; luDES, ACF49507.1.
