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
hppdPF W336 Pseudomonas fluorescens strain A32 modified p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (hppd) enzyme confers tolerance to HPPD-inhibiting herbicides (such as isoxaflutole) by reducing the specificity for the herbicide's bioactive constituent
pat Streptomyces viridochromogenes phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) enzyme eliminates herbicidal activity of glufosinate (phosphinothricin) herbicides by acetylation
