Description
Potato plants with the insertion of a constitutively expressed endogenous threonine synthase in the antisense orientation. The modification leads to a reduction in threonine synthase which inturn results in an increase in the methionine content in the leaves and tubers.

The genetically modified potato plants are of weaker growth than the parental variety and have chlorotic leaves.
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

Vector
Derivative of pBIN19
