Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
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
bar Streptomyces hygroscopicus phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
barnase Bacillus amyloliquefaciens barnase ribonuclease (RNAse) enzyme causes male sterility by interfering with RNA production in the tapetum cells of the anther
barstar Bacillus amyloliquefaciens barnase ribonuclease inhibitor restores fertility by repressing the inhibitory effect of barnase on tapetum cells of the anther
