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
goxv247 Ochrobactrum anthropi strain LBAA glyphosate oxidase confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicides by degrading glyphosate into aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) and glyoxylate
