Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence

Biological function
The gm-fad2-1 is a fragment of the omega-6 desaturase gene 1 (FAD2-1) from Glycine max (soybean) that corresponds to approximately 40% of the middle portion of the coding region of FAD2-1 (597 bp).

gm-fad2-1 itself does not code for a functional protein, but transcription of this gene fragment transgenic soybean seeds acts to suppress transcription of endogenous omega-6 desaturase, resulting in the high oleic phenotype.
