Description
This stacked maize line was generated through the conventional cross breeding of the LM BT11 and MIR162 maize lines. Insect resistance is conferred by the cry1A(b) and Vip3Aa20 genes from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, and glufosinate herbicide tolerance through the pat gene from Streptomyces viridochromogenes.
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 Bt 11 vector pZO1502
Maize produced by inserting the cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis), and the phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) encoding gene from Streptomyces viridochromogenes to confer tolerance to phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide, specifically glufosinate ammonium.

DNA insert from MIR162 vector pNOV1300
MIR162 maize is transformed with vip3Aa20 gene which encodes the Vip3Aa20 protein that confers resistance against lepidopteran insect pests  i it also contains the manA gene from Escherichia coli, which encodes the selectable marker, phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).
