General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
avhppd-03 gene
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Avena sativa - Oat, AVESA
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
p-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase
Biological function
The gene avhppd-03 decodes the enzyme AvHPPD-03 which catalyses the formation of homogentisic acid, the aromatic precursor of plastoquinone and vitamin E biosynthesis . It has a low binding afinity for mesotrione, a herbicide that inhibits HHPD. Expression of AvHPPD-03 in plant cells confers tolerance to HPPD inhibitor herbicides such as mesotrione.
Related trait(s) or use(s) in biotechnology
  • Resistance to herbicides
