General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Dicamba monooxygenase gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia - S. maltophilia, Stenotrophomonas
Donor organism point of collection
While the majority of the literature, to date, indicates that Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is the donor organism of DMO, there is currently no definite information from the producer that indicates it is in fact the same gene that has been incorporated into the LMO.
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Dicamba Monooxygenase
Biological function
DMO (dicamba monooxygenase) catalyzes the degradation of the herbicide dicamba (3,6-dichloro-o-anisic acid) to non-toxic 3,6-dichlorosalicylic acid (3,6- DCSA) in plants, thus conferring herbicide tolerance.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • Resistance to herbicides
