Transgenic rapeseed line with an integrated, modified, aroA gene to confer resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.
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.
Brassica napus - Turnip, Rapeseed, Canola Plant, Oilseed Rape, Rape, BRANA
Characteristics of the transformation process
Techniques used for the modification
  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Introduced or modified genetic elements
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Nopaline Synthase Gene Promoter - Agrobacterium tumefaciens - Agrobacterium
Neomycin Phosphotransferase II - Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Resistance to antibiotics - Kanamycin
CaMV 35S promoter - Cauliflower mosaic virus - CaMV
Nopaline Synthase Gene Terminator - Agrobacterium tumefaciens - Agrobacterium
5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase gene - Dickeya dadantii - DICDA
Resistance to herbicides - Glyphosate
Chloroplast Transit Peptide - Nicotiana tabacum - Tobacco, TOBAC
Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Transgenic rapeseed line with integrated gene aroA under control of the constitutive 35S promoter of cauliflower mosaic virus and nopaline synthase termination sequence of A. tumefaciens. Incorporation of the aroA target gene confers resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.  To increase transgenic line resistance  to glyphosate single nucleotide mutation was introduced into the aroA sequence by the site-directed mutagenesis.
