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.
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

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
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.
