The cDNA of the granule-bound starch synthase (CS-gbss-SOLTU) from Solanum tuberosum is arranged in antisense orientation. This causes the formation of an antisense RNA in the genetically modified plants, which inactivates the endogenous transcript, reducing or inhibiting the production of the corresponding endogenous potato enzyme.

As a result of the genetic modification the starch metabolism in the genetically modified potato plants is altered to the effect that the synthesised starch is modified in terms of structure and/or composition. It differs from normal potato starch in its amylose content.
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.
