LMO name
Liberty Link™ Independence™ Canola
Transformation event
Topas 19/2 (HCN10)
Glyphosate herbicide tolerant canola produced by inserting the phosphinothricin acetyltransferase (pat) gene conferring tolerance to Phosphinothricin (Glufosinate ammonium) herbicide and neomycin phosphotransferase II (npt II) conferring resistance to the herbicide kanamycin.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
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.
Brassica napus - Turnip, Rapeseed, Canola Plant, Oilseed Rape, Rape, BRANA
