The genetically modified potato plants constitutively express a mutated fragment of the NIb gene of the Potato Virus Y, which, in its native form, codes for a RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. The modification is expected to confer resistance to PVY.
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
A mutated sequence of the NIb replicase of the Potato Virus Y is expressed under the control of the 35S promoter and termination sequence of the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus.

The mutated sequence has a deletion at the C-terminus (approx. 400 nt) and at the N-terminus (6 nt), and an internal shift in the reading frame affecting 14 amino acids, leading to a non-functional gene product.
