White birch modified for herbicide tolerance
Филиал Института биоорганической химии имени академиков М.М.Шемякина и Ю.А.Овчинникова
White birch (Betula pubescens) was modified with the
insertion of a Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT)
expression cassette. The expression of the PAT protein imparts
tolerance to the glufosinate herbicide.
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.
Betula pubescens - White birch, Moor birch, Downy birch, European white birch, Hairy birch
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase gene - Streptomyces hygroscopicus - STRHY
Resistance to herbicides - Glufosinate
