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
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
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
 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
