Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
amy797E synthetic gene derived from Thermococcales spp. thermostable alpha-amylase enzyme enhances bioethanol production by increasing the thermostability of amylase used in degrading starch
pmi  * Escherichia coli Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) enzyme metabolizes mannose and allows positive selection for recovery of transformed plants
mcry3A synthetic form of cry3A gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. tenebrionis modified Cry3A delta-endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects particularly corn rootworm pests by selectively damaging their midgut lining
mepsps Zea mays modified 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) enzyme confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicides
