LMO name
BXN™ Plus Bollgard™ Cotton
Transformation event

Description
Cotton tolerant to oxynil herbicides, through introduction of the bxn gene isolated from the bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae subspecies ozaenae which codes for the enzyme nitrilase, which hydrolyses ioxynil and bromoxynil into non-toxic compounds. The cotton is also resistant to lepidopteran insects through the introduction of cry1Ac from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. Kurstaki.
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.
Gossypium hirsutum - Cotton
