Plum tree Stanley clone C5 was modified to contain the coat protein gene of Plum pox virus. The insertion of the construct changes the properties of the recipient's organism so that plum obtains Plum pox virus coat protein gene into its genetic information. This gene encodes the synthesis of a pox virus coat protein which in turn confers resistance against the PPV virus.
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
Clone C5 appeared to have at least two inserts with one being a possible rearrangement of the PPV-CP gene. This plant had significantly lower amounts  of RNA transcript and no detectable protein.
