Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
surB  * Nicotiana tabacum herbicide tolerant acetolactate synthase (ALS) enzyme confers tolerance to sulfonylurea herbicides and other acetolactate synthase (ALS) inhibiting herbicides
acc (truncated) Dianthus caryophyllus modified transcript of 1-amino-cyclopropane -1-carboxylic acid (ACC) synthase gene causes reduced synthesis of endogenous ethylene through a gene silencing mechanism and thus delayed senescence and longer vase life
