Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Fa2 synthetic form of cry1F gene derived from Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai modified Cry1F protein confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
cry3Bb1 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry3Bb1 delta endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects particularly corn rootworm by selectively damaging their midgut lining
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes 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
aad-1 synthetic form of the aad-1 gene from Sphingobium herbicidovorans aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase 1 (AAD-1) protein detoxifies 2,4-D herbicide by side-chain degradation and degrades the R-enantiomers of aryloxyphenoxypropionate herbicides
