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.
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.
