The genetically modified potato expresses the lysozyme gene of bacteriophage T4 that is fused to the alpha-amylase endoplasmic reticulum signal peptide of Hordeum vulgare at the 5' end.

T4 lysozyme is a bactericidal enzyme which causes bacterial cell wall lysis. As a result of the genetic modification the potatoes are expected to have an increased tolerance to bacterial pathogens.

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.
