Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
vip3Aa20 Bacillus thuringiensis strain AB88 vegetative insecticidal protein (vip3Aa variant) confers resistance to feeding damage caused by lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut
mcry3A synthetic form of cry3A gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. tenebrionis modified Cry3A delta-endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects particularly corn rootworm pests by selectively damaging their midgut lining
pmi  * Escherichia coli Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) enzyme metabolizes mannose and allows positive selection for recovery of transformed plants


 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
