As I recall, the flavr-savr tomato was made by putting the polygalacturonase
gene into one of the RIN or NOR or NR ripening mutants.  I think it was NR.
They used the PG gene from the paper by Della-Penna and Alexander PNAS 1986
I think.  I could be wrong, but I have spoken to several people from Calgene,
and I know they told me that this is how they made some of the early varieties.

	Hope this helps
