Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
gbss (antisense fragment) Solanum tuberosum no functional granule-bound starch synthase (GBSS) enzyme is produced; production of GBSS enzyme is suppressed by a gene silencing mechanism reduces the levels of amylose and increases the levels of amylopectin in starch granules
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
 * : Selection Marker/Reporter
