Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
fad2-1A (sense and antisense) Glycine max no functional enzyme is produced (production of delta-12 desaturase enzyme is suppressed by RNA interference) reduces desaturation of 18:1 oleic acid to 18:2 linoleic acid; increases the levels of monounsaturated oleic acid and decreases the levels of saturated linoleic acid in the seed
fatb1-A (sense and antisense segments) Glycine max no functional enzyme is produced (production of FATB enzymes or acyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterases is suppressed by RNA interference) decreases the transport of saturated fatty acids out of the plastid, thereby increasing their availability to desaturation to 18:1 oleic acid; reduces the levels of saturated fatty acids and increases the levels of 18:1 oleic acid
dmo Stenotrophomonas maltophilia strain DI-6 dicamba mono-oxygenase enzyme confers tolerance to the herbicide dicamba (2-methoxy-3,6-dichlorobenzoic acid) by using dicamba as substrate in an enzymatic reaction
