SBVR111 sugar beet expresses the RZM gene which confers resistance to rhisomania disease caused by the beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV) through interaction with the reproductive system of the virus that will lead to a reduction of the development of the virus in the plant.

SBVR111 sugar beet also expresses a Phosphomannose Isomerase (PMI) protein, which acts as a selectable marker enabling transformed plant cells to utilize mannose as a primary carbon source.

Further details
Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
The part intended for the insertion contains RZM gene originated from the Beet Necrotic Yellow Vein Virus (BNYVV). The gene RZM is the inverted repeat of a part of the RNA-1 gene transcript of the BNYVV. This portion of RNA-1 encodes the RNA dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) or replicase protein. Expression of the RZM, driven by the promoter and intron from the Ubiquitin 3 (Ubi3) gene of Arabidopsis thaliana, confers resistance to BNYVV by targeting the replicase RNA transcript of the infecting virus via the RNAi mechanism.

Additional information
Data from Southern analysis show that SBVR111 sugar beet contains only one copy of the tested transgene. SVBR111 does not contain any replication sequence from the transformation plasmid pSYN15965. Moreover, the statistic analysis of segregation ratios over several generations confirmed an expected Mendel´s ratio for pmi gene. Data show that the insert was integrated into SBVR111 sugar beet nuclear genome.
