Potato modified for increased starch content
Instituto de Agrobiotecnología
Campus de Arrosadía
Potato was genetically modified to over express the
glucose-6-phosphate translocator leading to an increase in starch
content in potato tubers.
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.
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Glucose 6 Phosphate Translocator coding sequence - Solanum tuberosum - Potato, SOLTU
Changes in quality and/or metabolite content - Carbohydrates
Nopaline Synthase Gene Terminator - Agrobacterium tumefaciens - Agrobacterium
Neomycin Phosphotransferase II - Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Resistance to antibiotics - Kanamycin
- Changes in quality and/or metabolite content
