||(1) Feed produced from BPS-25271-9 potato;
(2) Food containing, consisting of or produced from BPS-25271-9 potato in a proportion no higher than 0.9% of the food ingredient considered individually or food consisting of a single ingredient;
(3) Feed containing or consisting of BPS-25271-9 potato in a proportion no higher than 0.9% of the feed and of each feed of which it is composed;
(4) Cultivation of BPS-25271-9 potato.
||The genetically modified potato BPS-25271-9, as described in the application, has an altered starch composition (higher amylopentin/amylase ratio). The modification implies inhibition of the expression of granule bound starch synthase protein (GBSS) responsible for amylose biosynthesis. As a result, the starch produced has little or no amylase and consists of amylopectin which modified the physical properties of the starch. An nptII gene, conferring kanamycin resistance, was used as a selectable marker.
||(1) For the purposes of the labelling requirements laid down in Articles 13(1) and 25(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 and in Article 4(6) of Regulation (EC) No 1830/2003, the 'name of the organism' shall be 'amylopectin starch potato'.
