The canola (Brassica rapa) was modified for tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide through the insertion of the Bacillus licheniformis glyphosate-N-acteyltransferase gene, which inactivates glyphosate through acetylation.
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 canola contains one gene cassette for Bacillus licheniformis glyphosate-N-ccteyltransferase (gat). The coding sequence was under control of an Arabidopsis thaliana ubiquitin-10 promoter and a Solanum tuberonsum proteinase inhibitor II 3' untranslated region.

The gat coding sequence expresses the GAT4621 version of the protein, which was functionally improved by a gene shuffling process to optimize the kinetics of glyphosate acetyltransferase.

Southern blot analysis indicated that a single, intact PHP28181 DNA fragment was inserted into the genome with no plasmid backbone DNA.
