Description
The stacked maize line MON88017 x DAS40278 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase, EPSPS and Cry3Bb1 genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors and glyphosate herbicide.
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 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.

DNA insert from MON88017 vector PV-ZMIR39
MON88017 expresses the cry3Bb1 gene encoding a Coleopteran-specific insecticidal protein to control infestation with corn root worm, and the cp4 epsps gene.
