LMO name
Canola modified for glufosinate tolerance
Transformation event
AgrEvo Canada Inc.
430 Dovercourt Drive

Winnipeg, MB
Canada, R3Y 1N4
A bacterial pat gene which codes for phosphinothricin acetyltransferase, an enzyme that inactivates glufosinate ammonium through acetylation, was introduced into the HCR-1 line by an interspecific cross with the genetically modified B. napus event T45 (ACS-BNØØ8-2). The inactivation of glufosinate ammonium by the bacterial enzyme confers the herbicide tolerance onto this LMO.
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.
Brassica rapa - Canola plant
ACS-BNØØ8-2 - Herbicide Tolerant Canola

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
The pat gene is a synthetic version of the gene isolated from Streptomyces viridochromogenes, strain Tü 494. The nucleotide sequence has been modified to provide codons preferred by plants without changing the amino acid sequence of the enzyme.

For additional information on this LMO, please refer to the record of  B. napus event T45 (ACS-BNØØ8-2).
