glyphosate oxidase

An enzyme which catalyses the break-down of glyphosate, discovered in a strain of Pseudomonas bacteria which were found to produce unusually large amounts of the enzyme. The gene responsible has been incorporated into a variety of crop plants to enable them to tolerate applications of glyphosate-containing herbicides. It has also been used in conjunction with the CP4 EPSPS gene.
