Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
2mepsps Zea mays 5-enolpyruvyl shikimate-3-phosphate synthase enzyme (double mutant version) decreases binding affinity for glyphosate, thereby increasing tolerance to glyphosate herbicide
cry1Ab Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki Cry1Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
cry2Ae Bacillus thuringiensis subsp Dakota Cry2Ae delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
bar Streptomyces hygroscopicus phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
vip3A(a) Bacillus thuringiensis strain AB88 VIP3A vegetative insecticidal protein confers resistance to feeding damage caused by lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
aph4 (hpt)  * Escherichia coli hygromycin-B phosphotransferase (hph) enzyme allows selection for resistance to the antibiotic hygromycin B
