Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Ab Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki Cry1Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
amy797E synthetic gene derived from Thermococcales spp. thermostable alpha-amylase enzyme enhances bioethanol production by increasing the thermostability of amylase used in degrading starch
pmi  * Escherichia coli Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) enzyme metabolizes mannose and allows positive selection for recovery of transformed plants
