Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
This document provides a comprehensive review of the information and data relevant to the environmental risk assessment of two proteins encoded by genes isolated from Bacillus thuringiensis, Cry 34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1, and presents a summary statement about the environmental safety of these proteins when produced in the genetically engineered (GE) maize event DAS-59122-7 (Zea mays, L.). All sources of information reviewed herein are publicly available and include dossiers presented to regulatory authorities, decision documents prepared by regulatory authorities, product descriptions prepared by product developers, and peer-reviewed literature.
