Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
fatB Carthamus tinctorius no functional enzyme produced (production of FATB enzymes or acyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterases is suppressed by RNA interference) downregulates fatB gene
fad2.2 Carthamus tinctorius no functional enzyme is produced (production of delta-12 desaturase enzyme is suppressed by RNA interference) downregulation of fad2.2 gene
hph  * Streptomyces sp. hygromycin phosphotransferase allows selection for resistance to the antibiotic hygromycin B
