Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
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
cry1A.105 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry1A.105 protein which comprises the Cry1Ab, Cry1F and Cry1Ac proteins confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
cry2Ab2 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry2Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
