Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Fa2 synthetic form of cry1F gene derived from Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai modified Cry1F protein confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
cry1Ab Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki Cry1Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
