Event 5307 corn plants contain the transgene ecry3.1Ab encoding a novel rootworm-control protein, eCry3.1Ab, and the transgene pmi encoding the enzyme phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).

The eCry3.1Ab protein is an engineered chimera of the modified Cry3A (mCry3A) and Cry1Ab proteins, members of a class of insecticidal proteins derived from Bacillus thuringiensis(Bt). The gene pmi was obtained from Escherichia colistrain K-12 and the protein it encodes was utilized as a plant selectable marker during development of 5307 corn.
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.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Southern blot analysis indicated that a single intact copy of the transformation cassette was inserted into the maize genome and that there was no integration of any backbone vector fragments. Nucleotide sequencing indicated that the the regulatory and functional elements of the insert were the same as those present in the pSYN12274 plasmid. Sequence analysis also revealed that some truncation occurred at the right border (RB) and left border (LB) ends of the T-DNA during the transformation process.
