Title: Methods for elevating fat/oil content in plants

Abstract

In some embodiments, the present invention provides a method of elevating lipid content in vegetative (non-seed) plant or algae cells, plant tissues, or whole plants by genetically modifying the plant or algae to express a lipid droplet-associated protein or polypeptide (such as fat-specific protein 27) of mammalian origin. Also provided are genetically-modified plant or algae cells, plant tissues, or whole plants with elevated cellular lipid content, expressing a lipid droplet-associated protein or polypeptide (such as fat-specific protein 27) of mammalian (e.g. human) origin.
