Aspen modified for increased growth rate
Филиал Института биоорганической химии имени академиков М.М.Шемякина и Ю.А.Овчинникова
Aspen (Populus tremula) was modified with the insertion of
a Glutamine synthetase (GS) expression cassette. The expression of
the GS protein results in an increased growth rate of the plant.
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.
Populus tremula - European aspen, Aspen, Common aspen, Eurasian aspen, quaking aspen, POPTN
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Glutamine synthetase gene - Pinus sylvestris - Scotch pine, Scots pine, PINSY
