Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry3A Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. tenebrionis cry3A delta endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
plrv_orf1 Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV) putative replicase domain of the potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) confers resistance to potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) through gene silencing mechanism
plrv_orf2 Potato Leaf Roll Virus (PLRV) putative helicase domain of the potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) confers resistance to potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) through gene silencing mechanism
