LMO name
Herbicide tolerant, insect resistant cotton
Transformation event
GHB614 x T304-40
Unique identifier
GHB614 x T304-40 cotton is the product of the conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms to produce cotton that expresses each of Cry1Ab, PAT, and EPSPS. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and tolerance to glufosinate herbicide 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 GHB614 vector pTEM2
Contains a single copy of the 2mepsps gene and regulatory elements which confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate

[b]DNA insert from T304-40 vector pTDL008[/b[
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.
