The stacked maize line DP-Ø9814Ø-6 and DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of the cry1F, gat4621, phosphinothricin acetyltransferase, and acetohydroxyacid synthase genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate, Sulfonylurea and glyphosate herbicide.
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
DNA insert from DP-Ø9814Ø-6 vector PHP24279
Expresses the GAT4621 and ZM-HRA proteins. The GAT4621 protein is a glyphosate acetyltransferase (GAT), confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate. The acetohydroxyacid synthase (AKA acetolactate synthase) gene confers tolerance to ALS-inhibiting herbicides, such as chlorimuron and thifensulfuron.

DNA insert from DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 vector PHI8999A
Expresses the Cry1F gene from Bacillus thuringiensis to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis). A transformation cassette coding for phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide tolerance, specifically glufosinate ammonium, was also inserted into the organism.
