Description
MON863 X MON810 X NK603 maize is an F1 hybrid resulting from the conventional breeding of MON-ØØ863-5, MON-ØØ81Ø-6, and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6. This F1 stacked hybrid is resistant to coleopterans, such as the Corn Rootworm, lepidopterans, such as the European Corn Borer, and is tolerant to the herbicide glyphosate.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
DNA insert from MON863, vector PV-ZMIR13:

Maize resistant to corn root worm produced by inserting the cry3Bb1 gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kumamotoensis. A neomycin phosphotransferase II (npt II) gene confers resistance to the antibiotic kanamycin.

DNA insert from MON810, vectors PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10:

MON810 contains a truncated portion of a synthetic form of the cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki. Two constructs PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10 have been used for transformation, but molecular analyses showed that MON810 does not contain any element from PV-ZMGT10 construct and only the elements from construct PV-ZMBK07 have been integrated into its genome. MON810 contains one integrated DNA consisting of P-e35S, I-Hsp70 and cry1Ab. The terminator of the nopaline synthase (nos) gene was lost due to a truncation at the 3' end of the gene cassette during genome integration and is, therefore, not present in MON810.

DNA insert from NK603, vector PV-ZMGT32:

The NK603 line of maize was developed to allow the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup®, as a weed control option. NK603 contains a form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate.
