Summary of Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
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
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
aad  * Escherichia coli 3''(9)-O-aminoglycoside adenylyltransferase enzyme allows selection for resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics such as spectinomycin and streptomycin
