In the GM oilseed rape plants that were transformed using the construct pLH-BnSGT-GUS the activity of the native oilseed rape enzyme UDP-glucose:sinapate glucosyltransferase (SGT) was reduced with the help of an RNAi construct. As a step in the biosynthesis of sinapine the UDP-glucose:sinapate glucosyltransferase catalyses the conversion of sinapic acid to sinapoyl glucose.

Suppression of the UDP-glucose:sinapate glucosyltransferase leads to a reduction of sinapine content in the seeds of the GM oilseed rape plants.
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.
