The genetic engineering used in modifying mangoes is extremely similar to that of the papaya. 

This is because both mangoes and papayas posses the ACC (ACS2) gene. 

This gene is responsible for producing ethylene and the influence of ethylene on the fruit is that it controls the ripening and senescence after the fruit has been picked. 

The main purpose of this genetic modifying is to reduce the amount of ethylene produced and to lengthen the onset of this gas. 

Scientist extract this gene from ripe mango var 'Caraboa' and after they separate the gene it is then cloned and sequenced. They can then insert the isolated gene back in the genome and it will act as a disturbance to the enzyme calling for more ethylene to be produced. 

Alternately, an ACC deaminase gene is inserted and its function is to convert ACC into a different substance which results in less ethylene being produced. 

Since genetically modified mangoes are on the market, scientists are free to explore other more effic…
