Gene: gm-fad2-1 (silencing locus)

Gene Source: Glycine max
Product: no functional enzyme is produced (production of endogenous delta-12 desaturase enzyme was suppressed by an additional copy of the gm-fad2-1 gene via a gene silencing mechanism)
Function: blocks the conversion of oleic acid to linoleic acid (by silencing the endogenous fad2-1 gene) and allows accumulation of monounsaturated oleic acid in the seed

GM Trait: Modified oil/fatty acid
