Transgenic rapeseed line with an integrated, modified, aroA gene to
confer resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
Brassica napus - Turnip, Rapeseed, Canola Plant, Oilseed Rape, Rape, BRANA
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Nopaline Synthase Gene Promoter - Agrobacterium tumefaciens - Agrobacterium
Neomycin Phosphotransferase II - Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Resistance to antibiotics - Kanamycin
Nopaline Synthase Gene Terminator - Agrobacterium tumefaciens - Agrobacterium
5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase gene - Dickeya dadantii - DICDA
Resistance to herbicides - Glyphosate
Chloroplast Transit Peptide - Nicotiana tabacum - Tobacco, TOBAC
Transgenic rapeseed line with integrated gene aroA under control of
the constitutive 35S promoter of cauliflower mosaic virus and
nopaline synthase termination sequence of A. tumefaciens.
Incorporation of the aroA target gene confers resistance to the
herbicide glyphosate. To increase transgenic line
resistance to glyphosate single nucleotide mutation was
introduced into the aroA sequence by the site-directed mutagenesis.
- Resistance to antibiotics
- Resistance to herbicides
