Simplot Innate™ Potato is genetically engineered to silence genes that lead to acrylamide formation in cooked potatoes, and genes that cause browning in damaged potatoes.
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.
This DNA insert comprises two expression cassettes and was inserted into the pSIM1278 transformation vector.

The first cassette comprises fragments of both the asparagine synthetase-1 gene (Asn1) and the polyphenol oxidase-5 gene (Ppo5), arranged as inverted repeats between the Agp promoter of the ADP  glucose pyrophosphorylase gene (Agp) and the Gbss promoter of the granule-bound starch synthase gene (Gbss) and results in silencing of both the Ppo5 and Asn1 genes.

The second cassette is comprised of fragments of the promoters of the starch associated gene (R1) and the phosphorylase-L gene (PhL), operably linked to the same Agp and Gbss promoters as the first cassette. The function of the second cassette is to silence the promoters of the starch associated gene (R1) and the phosphorylase-L gene (PhL).

Southern blot analysis indicated that event E12 contains a single complete copy of the DNA insert and no vector backbone in the LMO.
