Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Southern blot analysis indicated that a single, intact insert of the aad-12 and pat genes were stably integrated into the cotton genome. Southern analyses also indicated the absence of the plasmid backbone DNA in DAS-8191Ø-7 cotton.
