Description
A stacked insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant maize derived from conventional cross-breeding of MIR162 x 5307.  Insect resistance is conferred by the pmi, vip3Aa20 and eCry3.1Ab genes from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis.
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 5307 vector pSYN12274
Event 5307 corn plants contain the transgene ecry3.1Ab encoding a novel rootworm-control protein, eCry3.1Ab, and the transgene pmi encoding the enzyme phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).

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).
