The stacked maize line MON-883Ø2-9 x ACS-BNØØ3-6 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of PAT and EPSPS genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer tolerance to glufosinate and glyphosate herbicides.
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 MON-883Ø2-9 vector PV-BNHT2672
MON 88302 produces the 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (CP4 EPSPS) protein, via the incorporation of a cp4 epsps coding sequence. The CP4 EPSPS protein confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in the family of Roundup® agricultural herbicides.

MON 88302 utilizes a FMV/Tsf1 chimeric promoter sequence to drive CP4 EPSPS expression in different plant tissues. By virtue of CP4 EPSPS expression in pollen, MON 88302 provides tolerance to glyphosate during the sensitive reproductive stages of growth, and enables the application of glyphosate at higher rates up to first flower with no detectable impact to male fertility.

DNA insert from ACS-BNØØ3-6, vector pTHW118
Canola fertility restoration system displaying glufosinate herbicide tolerance. Contains the barstar gene from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, and the bar gene encoding phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) from Streptomyces hygroscopicus to confer tolerance to the herbicide phosphinothricin (Glufosinate ammonium).
