Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
ecry3.1Ab synthetic form of Cry3A gene and Cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis chimeric (Cry3A-Cry1Ab) delta endotoxin protein confers resistance to coleopteran and lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
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
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
