Intracellular expression of the transgenic hrpN gene has been shown to upregulate the expression of endogenous PR2, PR5 and PR10 genes which may confer increased protection against biotrophic pathogens in transgenic Solanum tuberosum L. plants as compared to control.
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.
Solanum tuberosum - Potato, SOLTU
Point of collection or acquisition of the recipient organism
Variety: Scarb N
Characteristics of the transformation process
pBIP-N constructed on the basis of pBI121 binary vector by insertion of hrpN-FLAG sequence into T-region
Techniques used for the modification
  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Introduced or modified genetic elements
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Harpin protein coding sequence - Pectobacterium carotovorum - PECCA
Resistance to diseases and pests
Neomycin Phosphotransferase II - Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Resistance to antibiotics - Kanamycin
Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
The hrpN sequence is modified at the 3 'end by addition of a short (8 codons) FLAG-epitope, allowing easy detection of its product by means of commercial anti-FLAG antibodies.
