Potato modified for increased starch content
EN
p35S-GPT2-NOS
No
Potato was genetically modified to over express the glucose-6-phosphate translocator leading to an increase in starch content in potato tubers.
EN
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.
Cultivar: Desirée
