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
bar Streptomyces hygroscopicus phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
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
cry1Ac Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Kurstaki strain HD73 Cry1Ac delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
aad  * Escherichia coli 3''(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenylyltransferase enzyme allows selection for resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics such as spectinomycin and streptomycin
uidA  * Escherichia coli beta-D-glucuronidase (GUS) enzyme produces blue stain on treated transformed tissue, which allows visual selection
cry2Ab2 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry2Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
