Box 2 Free nucleic acids resulting from genetic engineering biotechnology
- Unregulated Hazards ‘Naked’ and ‘Free’ Nucleic Acids

Transfected, unincorporated nucleic acids/constructs due to gene-therapy, vaccination, transgenesis, which are released into the environment by secretion, excretion, waste carcass disposal, cell death, etc.

Transgenic DNA released from live or dead cells contained in:

 

  • Transgenic wastes from genetically engineered microorganisms in contained use
  • Transgenic wastes from cell cultures in contained use
  • Transgenic wastes from genetically engineered crops
  • Transgenic wastes from genetically engineered fish and other aquatic organisms
  • Transgenic wastes from genetically engineered farm animals
  • Unprocessed transgenic food and animal feed
  • Processed transgenic food for human use and animal feed
  • Processed transgenic textiles such as cotton
  • Transgenic dust from food processing
  • Transgenic pollen
  • Transgenic honey
