Cotton modified with the insertion of transformation cassette containing the Dicamba monooxygenase (DMO) gene and Bialaphos resistance (BAR) gene to confer resistance to the herbicides Dicamba and Glufosinate.

This LMO does not yet have a trade name established, since this event is in the experimental stage.
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.
Gossypium hirsutum - Cotton
Point of collection or acquisition of the recipient organism
Variety: Coker 312
Related LMOs
MON-887Ø1-3 - Dicamba and Glufosinate Tolerant Cotton
Resistance to herbicides - Glufosinate
Characteristics of the transformation process
Techniques used for the modification
  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Introduced or modified genetic elements
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Dicamba monooxygenase gene - Stenotrophomonas maltophilia - S. maltophilia, Stenotrophomonas
Resistance to herbicides
Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase gene - Streptomyces hygroscopicus - STRHY
Resistance to herbicides - Glufosinate
Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Information on the inserted DNA sequences
Two cassettes containing either the DMO or BAR gene with their respective regulatory elements were transformed into the cotton plants.

No information is available regarding these regulatory elements since the LMO is still in the experimental/ development stage and the information is considered confidential business information.
