Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
pat (syn) synthetic form of pat gene derived from Streptomyces viridochromogenes strain Tu 494 phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
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
bla  * Escherichia coli beta lactamase enzyme detoxifies beta lactam antibiotics such as ampicillin
