Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
gm-fad2-1 (silencing locus) Glycine max no functional enzyme is produced (production of endogenous delta-12 desaturase enzyme was suppressed by an additional copy of the gm-fad2-1 gene via a gene silencing mechanism) blocks the conversion of oleic acid to linoleic acid (by silencing the endogenous fad2-1 gene) and allows accumulation of monounsaturated oleic acid in the seed
bla  * Escherichia coli beta lactamase enzyme detoxifies beta lactam antibiotics such as ampicillin
uidA  * Escherichia coli beta-D-glucuronidase (GUS) enzyme produces blue stain on treated transformed tissue, which allows visual selection
 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
