Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
nptII  * Escherichia coli Tn5 transposon neomycin phosphotransferase II enzyme allows transformed plants to metabolize neomycin and kanamycin antibiotics during selection
dCS Gossypium hirsutum L. dsRNA that suppresses the expression of d-cadinene synthase gene that encode d-cadinene synthase, a key enzyme involved in gossypol biosynthesis, thru RNAi pathway silence the endogenous dCS genes
