Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
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
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
