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
barnase Bacillus amyloliquefaciens barnase ribonuclease (RNAse) enzyme causes male sterility by interfering with RNA production in the tapetum cells of the anther
barstar Bacillus amyloliquefaciens barnase ribonuclease inhibitor restores fertility by repressing the inhibitory effect of barnase on tapetum cells of the anther
