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
bbx32 Arabidopsis thaliana protein that interacts with one or more endogenous transcription factors to regulate the plant’s day/night physiological processes to modulate plant's diurnal biology and to enhance growth and reproductive development
