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
cry1F Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai Cry1F delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
cry1Ac Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Kurstaki strain HD73 Cry1Ac delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
bar Streptomyces hygroscopicus phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
