The transgenic potato was modified to incorporate a synthetic sequence coding for cecropin antimicrobial peptide (CEMA). The resulting transgenic potato plants have a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity.
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.
