LMO name
Herbicide tolerant maize
Transformation event
DAS40278 x NK603
Unique identifier
DAS-4Ø278-9 x MON-ØØ6Ø3-6
Developer(s)
Dow AgroScience
Description
The stacked maize line DAS-4Ø278-9 x MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of the EPSPS and Aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer tolerance glyphosate herbicide  and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors.
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 NK603 vector PV-ZMGT32
Parental organism NK603 contributed 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.

DNA insert from DAS40278 vector pDAS1740
DAS-40278-9 corn was modified with the insertion of a plant optimised coding sequence for aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors.
