Description
The stacked maize line DAS-Ø15Ø7-1, MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 and SYN-IR6Ø4-5 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of EPSPS, Cry1F, PPT and Cry3A genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate herbicide and glyphosate herbicide.
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.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
DNA insert from NK603 vector PV-ZMGT32
The MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 line of maize was developed to allow the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup®, as a weed control option. NK603 contains a form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate.

DNA insert from TC1507 vector PHP8999
Corn line DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 is modified with the insertion of the Cry1F gene from Bacillus thuringiensis to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis). A transformation cassette coding for phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide tolerance, specifically glufosinate ammonium, was also inserted into the organism.

DNA insert from MIR604 vector pZM26
MIR604 is a genetically modified maize developed to confer field protection against corn root worms. The mcry3A gene from Bacillus thuringiensis codes for a  Bt-toxin (Cry3A), which confers resistance to western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera), northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica longicornis barberi) and other related coleopteran species.
