Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Ab Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki Cry1Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
goxv247  * Ochrobactrum anthropi strain LBAA glyphosate oxidase confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicides by degrading glyphosate into aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) and glyoxylate
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
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
