Brassica napus is modified with the VST1 gene which codes for stilbene synthase. This enzyme catalyses the a step in the reaction that leads to the synthesis of resveratol in Brassica napus.
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.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
The plasmid used to transform the oilseed rape plants with the pPSty5 construct is derived from the binary vector pPZP111 (Hajdukiewicz et al., 1994) and contains the following genetic elements outside the border regions:
- a bacterial chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene (CmR gene, cat-Gen), which confers resistance to the antibiotic chloramphenicol;
- the bom sequence from pBR322 for mobilisation of the plasmid from E. coli in Agrobacterium tumefaciens;
- the origins of replication from ColE1 and pVS1 for replication in E. coli or Agrobacterium.
