Description
The genetically modified plants constitutively express the cDNA of the plasidic isoform of adenylate kinase in an antisense orientation. Adenylate kinases catalyzes the reversible transfer of a phosphate group from adenosine triphosphates (ATP) to adenosine monophosphates (AMP) to yield adenosine diphosphates (ADP).

As a result of the genetic modification endogenous expression of adenylate kinase s inhibited which is expected to lead to an increase in the specific density of the potato tubers.
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.
