LMO name
Herbicide tolerant Maize
Transformation event
Stine Seed Farm, Inc.
United States of America
HCEM485 maize line was modified for glyphosate herbicide tolerance by inserting a 6.0 kb maize genomic fragment containing a modified, glyphosate tolerant form of the endogenous maize EPSPS encoding gene.
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
The maize EPSPS coding sequence was specifically modified by site-directed mutagenesis to introduce two single-nucleotide substitutions. These two point mutations resulted in a codon change from threonine to isoleucine  at position 102 (relative to the amino acid sequence of the native maize EPSPS enzyme) and
a proline to serine change at position 106.

Molecular characterization of the insertion suggests that 4 complete copies of the fragment are inserted at a single location.
