(StackedHerbicide Tolerance

Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
dmo Stenotrophomonas maltophilia strain DI-6 dicamba mono-oxygenase enzyme confers tolerance to the herbicide dicamba (2-methoxy-3,6-dichlorobenzoic acid) by using dicamba as substrate in an enzymatic reaction
cp4 epsps (aroA:CP4) Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain CP4 herbicide tolerant form of 5-enolpyruvulshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) enzyme decreases binding affinity for glyphosate, thereby conferring increased tolerance to glyphosate herbicide
