Description
The stacked cotton line MON88701 x MON88913 was obtained through the traditional cross breeding of each of the parental organisms to proguce a plant that expresses EPSPS, that confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate, as well as Dicamba monooxygenase gene that confers tolerance to the herbicide dicamba and Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase gene that confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosate.
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 MON 88913 vector PV-GHGT35
This LMO contains a novel form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows MON 88913 to survive otherwise lethal applications of glyphosate.

DNA insert from MON88701 vector PV-GHHT6997
Cotton modified with the insertion of transformation cassette containing the Dicamba monooxygenase (DMO) gene and Bialaphos resistance (BAR) gene to confer resistance to the herbicides Dicamba and Glufosinate respectively.

For additional information on this LMO, please refer to the records of the parental LMOs.
