Basic Genetic Modification

Gene Introduced Gene Source Product Function
cry1Da_7 Bacillus thuringiensis crystalline protein prototoxin Cry1Da_7 The cry1Da_7 coding sequence is under control of a Setaria italica promoter and an O. sativa gos2 terminator. The first intron of the rice actin 15 gene was also included and likely improves expression of the gene.
cry1B.868 Bacillus thuringiensis crystalline protein prototoxin Cry1B.868 The cry1B.868 coding sequence is under control of a Zea mays ubiquitin promoter and an Oryza sativa lipid transfer-like protein terminator. The promoter contains the promoter, leader and intron sequences from the maize ubiquitin gene. High levels of transcription are expected in all tissues due to the constitutive nature of the promoter.
cry3Bb1 Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis Cry3Bb1 delta endotoxin confers resistance to coleopteran insects particularly corn rootworm by selectively damaging their midgut lining
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
