Canola was modified with the insertion of the aroA gene from Dickeya dadantii encoding a modified 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) and the thiO gene from Bacillus subtilis which encodes a glycine oxidase. Te transformation of these genes into the canola genome confers resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.
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.
Brassica napus - Turnip, Rapeseed, Canola Plant, Oilseed Rape, Rape, BRANA
