Optimum® Gly Canola
Canola modified for tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide through the insertion of the Glyphosate-N-Acteyltransferase gat4621 gene.
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.
Line 1822B
  • DP-Ø61Ø61-7 - Glyphosate tolerant canola
    | Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. | Resistance to herbicides (Glyphosate)
Characteristics of the modification process
  • Biolistic / Particle gun
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-104802-5 Polyubiquitin10 gene promoter | Arabidopsis thaliana (Thale cress, Mouse-ear cress, Arabidopsis, ARATH)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-48363-4 Glyphosate-N-Acteyltransferase gene | Bacillus licheniformis (BACLI)
    Protein coding sequence | Resistance to herbicides (Glyphosate)
  • BCH-GENE-SCBD-100367-4 Proteinase inhibitor II gene terminator | Solanum tuberosum (Potato, SOLTU)
73496 canola has been genetically modified to express the GAT4621 version of the protein.

Southern blot analysis indicated that a single, intact PHP28181A DNA fragment was inserted into the genome with no plasmid backbone DNA.
