Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
This pSIM1278 transformation vector contained a DNA insert comprising of two expression cassettes.

The first cassette comprises fragments of both the asparagine synthetase-1 gene (Asn1) and the polyphenol oxidase-5 gene (Ppo5), arranged as inverted repeats between the Agp promoter of the ADP  glucose pyrophosphorylase gene (Agp) and the Gbss promoter of the granule-bound starch synthase gene (Gbss) and results in silencing of both the Ppo5 and Asn1 genes.

The second cassette is comprised of fragments of the promoters of the starch associated gene (R1) and the phosphorylase-L gene (PhL), operably linked to the same Agp and Gbss promoters as the first cassette. The function of the second cassette is to silence the promoters of the starch associated gene (R1) and the phosphorylase-L gene (PhL).

Southern blot analysis indicated that event G11 contains a single DNA insert comprising the sequences needed for expression of the Asn1/Ppo5 gene silencing cassette, and no vector backbone in the LMO.
