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
pvy_cp Potato Virus Y (PVY) coat protein of the potato virus Y (PVY) confers resistance to potato virus Y (PVY) through "pathogen-derived resistance" mechanism
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
aad  * Escherichia coli 3''(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenylyltransferase enzyme allows selection for resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics such as spectinomycin and streptomycin

 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
