Description
A stacked maize line MON-ØØ81Ø-6 x SYN-IR162-4 obtained through conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms.  The modifications in these lines confer resistance to Lepidopteran pests.
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 MON810 vector PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10:
The cry1Ab gene, isolated from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), produces the insect control protein Cry1Ab, a delta-endotoxin.

DNA insert from MIR162 vector pNOV1300:
MIR162 maize is transformed with vip3Aa20 gene which encodes the Vip3Aa20 protein that confers resistance against lepidopteran insect pests. Event MIR162 maize also contains the manA gene from Escherichia coli, which encodes the selectable marker, phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).
