Canola modified for herbicide tolerance
Transgenic rapeseed line with an integrated, modified, aroA gene to confer resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.
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.
Characteristics of the modification process
  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-100270-6 Nopaline Synthase Gene Promoter | Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Agrobacterium)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-15001-5 Neomycin Phosphotransferase II | Escherichia coli (ECOLX)
    Protein coding sequence | Resistance to antibiotics (Kanamycin)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-100287-7 CaMV 35S promoter | Cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-100269-8 Nopaline Synthase Gene Terminator | Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Agrobacterium)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-106246-1 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase gene | Dickeya dadantii (DICDA)
    Protein coding sequence | Resistance to herbicides (Glyphosate)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-106247-1 Chloroplast Transit Peptide | Nicotiana tabacum (Tobacco, TOBAC )
    Transit signal
Transgenic rapeseed line with integrated gene aroA under control of the constitutive 35S promoter of cauliflower mosaic virus and nopaline synthase termination sequence of A. tumefaciens. Incorporation of the aroA target gene confers resistance to the herbicide glyphosate.  To increase transgenic line resistance  to glyphosate single nucleotide mutation was introduced into the aroA sequence by the site-directed mutagenesis.
