Description
Solanum tuberosum was transformed with a construct containing a 581 bp long fragment of exon 2 of the potato granule bound starch synthase (GBSS) gene in antisense orientation. The transcription of this fragment is controlled by its native, tuber-specific promoter P-gbss and its contiguous non-translated leader sequence - consisting of exon 1 and intron 1 of the GBSS gene. The transcription is terminated by the CaMV 35S terminator from Cauliflower mosaic virus.

The markergen-free amylopectin potato pMFIp9-1, line #1332 exhibits an altered starch quality compared to wild-type potato. Nearly pure amylopectin-starch is synthesized.

By introduction of an antisense-sequence the endogenous GBSS gene is silenced post-transcriptionally. This leads to a significant reduced expression of GBSS-protein and therefore an impaired amylose synthesis; the synthesized starch within these potato lines consists almost exclusively of amylopectin.

This transgenic organism does not contain any marker genes for selection purposes within the inserted T-DNA.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
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.
