Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
cry1Ab (truncated) synthetic form of Cry1Ab from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry1Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
vip3Aa20 Bacillus thuringiensis strain AB88 vegetative insecticidal protein (vip3Aa variant) confers resistance to feeding damage caused by lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut
pmi  * Escherichia coli Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) enzyme metabolizes mannose and allows positive selection for recovery of transformed plants
