BCS-GHØØ2-5 × BCS-GHØØ4-7 × BCS-GHØØ5-8 × SYN-IR1Ø2-7
GHB614 x T304-40 x GHB119 x COT102 cotton is the product of the conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms to produce cotton that expresses each of Vip3a, Cry2Ae, Cry1Ab, PAT, EPSPS, and hpt. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and tolerance to glufosinate herbicide and glyphosate herbicide as well as resistance to the antibiotic hygromycin B.

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.

Characteristics of the modification process
pCOT-1, pTEM12, pTEM2 and pTDL008
EN
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from COT102 vector pCOT-1:
Cotton tolerant to lepidopteran pests through introduction of the vip3A(a) gene which codes for an insecticidal protein that targets lepidopteran insect species. The aph4 gene, coding for hygromycin-B phosphotransferase (APH4) was used as a selectable marker.

DNA insert from GHB614 vector pTEM2
Contains a single copy of the 2mepsps gene and regulatory elements which confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate

DNA insert from T304-40 vector pTDL008
Contains one full copy and partial elements of the Cry1Ab gene which expressed an insecticidal crystal protein that protects against lepidopteran pests and the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.

DNA insert from GHB119 vector pTEM12
Contains one full copy of the Cry2Ae gene which expressed an insecticidal crystal protein that protects against lepidopteran pests and the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.
