Description
The stacked cotton line TwinLink™ was created through the conventional cross-breeding of the LM cotton lines T304-40 and GHB119 to express Cry1Ab and Cry2Ae each of which expresses insecticidal crystal proteins thus conferring resistance against lepidoptera and the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.

Further details
Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
DNA insert from GHB119 vector pTEM12
Contains one full copy of the Cry2Ae gene which expressed an insecticidal crystal protein that protects against lepidopteran pests and the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.

DNA insert from T304-40 vector pTDL008
Contains one full copy and partial elements of the Cry1Ab gene which expressed an insecticidal crystal protein that protects against lepidopteran pests and the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.
