Description
Transgenic corn was modified to increase the levels beta-carotene, ascorbate, and folate, specifically in the endosperm, through the simultaneous modification of 3 separate metabolic pathways.
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.
