Event 5307 corn plants contain the transgene ecry3.1Ab encoding a
novel rootworm-control protein, eCry3.1Ab, and the transgene pmi
encoding the enzyme phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).
The eCry3.1Ab protein is an engineered chimera of the modified
Cry3A (mCry3A) and Cry1Ab proteins, members of a class of
insecticidal proteins derived from Bacillus thuringiensis(Bt). The
gene pmi was obtained from Escherichia colistrain K-12 and the
protein it encodes was utilized as a plant selectable marker during
development of 5307 corn.
