LMO name
Sugar beet modified for herbicide tolerance
Transformation event
T227-1
Developer(s)
Monsanto Europe SA
270-272 Avenue de Tervuren
Brussels
Belgium, B-1150
Description
T227-1 sugar beet was modified with the insertion of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) from Agrobacterium tumefaciens, thereby conferring tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate.
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.
