Description
This stacked maize line contains genetic elements that were inherited via the traditional cross breeding of the parental lines MON87460 and NK603. This line expresses the cspB, and the glyophosate tolerant EPSPS proteins. These proteins are to confer drought and glyphosate tolerance.
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 MON87460 vector PV-ZMAP595
MON 87460 expresses cold shock protein B (CspB) from Bacillus subtilis and NptII from Tn5 of Escherichia coli. MON 87460 was developed to provide reduced yield loss under water-limited conditions compared to conventional maize.

DNA insert from NK603 vector PV-ZMGT32
MON87460 x NK603 also 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. The glyphosate-tolerant EPSPS gene was isolated from the CP4 strain of the common soil bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens.
