Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Ab-Ac synthetic fusion gene derived from Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ab-Ac delta endotoxin (fusion protein) confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
uidA  * Escherichia coli beta-D-glucuronidase¬†(GUS) enzyme produces blue stain on treated transformed tissue, which allows visual selection
 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
