Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
bar Streptomyces hygroscopicus phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
barstar Bacillus amyloliquefaciens barnase ribonuclease inhibitor restores fertility by repressing the inhibitory effect of barnase on tapetum cells of the anther
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
