The stacked cotton line COT102 x COT67B was produced by cross breeding between cotton LMOs COT102 and COT67B to resist the lepidopteran pests such as the cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa zea), amongst others, via the introduction of the Vip3A and Cry1Ab genes respectively.

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.

DNA insert from COT102 vector pCOT-1:
Cotton tolerant to lepidopteran pests through introduction of the vip3A(a) gene which codes for an insecticidal protein that targets lepidopteran insect species. The aph4 gene, coding for hygromycin-B phosphotransferase (APH4) was used as a selectable marker.

DNA insert from COT67B vector pNOV4641 and pNOV1914:
Cotton resistant to lepidopteran pests through introduction of the cry1Ab gene, in the pNOV4641 vector, which codes for the Cry1Ab insecticidal protein that targets lepidopteran insect species. The pNOV1914 vector contained a selection marker and was selected against using traditional plant breeding techniques.
