LM cotton line, T303-3,was modified for protection against feeding
damage by Lepidopteran insect larvae, and tolerance to herbicides
containing glufosinate ammonium.
Insect protection is conferred by expression of a modified Cry1Ab
protein from Bacillus thuringiensis and herbicide tolerance is
conferred by expression of phosphinothricin acetyltransferase (PAT)
from Streptomyces hygroscopicus.
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.
BCS-GHØØ4-7 - Herbicide-tolerant, insect-resistant cotton
Resistance to diseases and pests - Insects - Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)
Resistance to herbicides - Glufosinate Show detection method(s)
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Nopaline Synthase Gene Terminator
Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase gene
NADP-malic enzyme 1 gene 3’UTR and terminator
Southern blot and sequencing analysis indicated that single intact
copies of each expression cassette was integrated into the host
genome, however the insert was integrated in a rearranged fashion
as compared to the vector sequence.
- Resistance to diseases and pests
- Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)
- European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis)
- Resistance to herbicides
