In the regulatory system "LEC1-ABI3", up- regulation of ABI3 in both Jatropha and Vernicia at fast accumulation stage seemed very likely concerned with ABI3's crucial roles in TAG accumulation and oil body stability (Crowe et al.
Meanwhile, ABI3 was negatively regulated by PKL both in seeds of Vernicia and Jatropha, which accords with its ABI3-repressing activity (Perruc et al.

This said to us that ABI3
either stabilizes the messenger RNA molecules whose creation is triggered by ABA, or it somehow allows messenger RNA to continue to be synthesized during rehydration," he explained.
