BCS-GHØØ2-5 x SYN-IR1Ø2-7 cotton is the product of the conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms to produce cotton that expresses each of Vip3a, EPSPS, and hpt. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and tolerance to glyphosate herbicide as well as resistance to the antibiotic hygromycin B.
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 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.
