Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
ecry3.1Ab synthetic form of Cry3A gene and Cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis chimeric (Cry3A-Cry1Ab) delta endotoxin protein confers resistance to coleopteran and lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
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
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
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
mepsps Zea mays modified 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) enzyme confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicides
