The stacked cotton line GHB614 x COT67B  is the product of the conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms to produce cotton that expresses each of EPSPS and Cry1Ab. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and tolerance to 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

DNA insert from COT67B vector pNOV4641 and pNOV1914:
Cotton resistant to lepidopteran pests through introduction of the cry1Ab gene, in the pNOV4641 vector, which codes for the Cry1Ab insecticidal protein that targets lepidopteran insect species. The pNOV1914 vector contained a selection marker and was selected against using traditional plant breeding techniques.
