Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
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
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
vip3Aa20 Bacillus thuringiensis strain AB88 vegetative insecticidal protein (vip3Aa variant) confers resistance to feeding damage caused by lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut
mepsps Zea mays modified 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) enzyme confers tolerance to glyphosate herbicides
cry2Ab2 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry2Ab delta-endotoxin confers resistance to lepidopteran insects by selectively damaging their midgut lining
