The genetically modified sugarbeets was modified to constitutively express the coat protein gene of the Beet Necrotic Yellow Vein Virus (BNYVV), an important domain for encapsidation, vector transmissibility and cell-to-cell transmission.

The constitutively expressed capsid protein gene gives rise to a concentration of coat protein in every cell of the genetically modified plant tissue which is far below the concentration found in plants infected with BNYVV.

As a result of the genetic modification a BNYVV resistance of the modified plants is expected.
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.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
The cDNA of the coat protein gene of the Beet Necrotic Yellow Vein Virus (BNYVV) is expressed under the control of the double 35S promoter of the Cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV). The CaMV 35S-terminator is used as a termination signal.

The neomycin phosphotransferase gene (nptII), expressed under the control of the promoter and termination signal of the nopaline synthase gene (nos) of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, is used as a selection marker.

The introduced nucleic acid is integrated in the genome of the recipient organism at more than 8 insertion sites.
