Transgenic form of canola into which interferon alpha from chicken
(Belarusian variety Pramen) is incorporated as well as a marker
gene providing resistance to phosphinothricin.
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.
Interferon alpha coding sequence - Gallus gallus - Chicken, CHICK
