Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry3Bb1 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry3Bb1 delta endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects particularly corn rootworm by selectively damaging their midgut lining
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
dvsnf7 Western Corn Rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera) double-stranded RNA transcript containing a 240 bp fragment of the WCR Snf7 gene RNAi interference resulting to down-regulation of the function of the targeted Snf7 gene leading to Western Corn Rootworm mortality.
