NK603 x MON810 was produced through cross breeding of the two genetically modified organisms NK603 and MON810. It contains the Cry1Ab which confers protection against the European corn borer and  5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate.

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.

Characteristics of the modification process
PV-ZMGT32, PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10
EN
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from NK603, vector PV-ZMGT32:

NK603 contains a form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate.

DNA insert from MON810, vectors PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10:

MON810 contains a truncated portion of a synthetic form of the cry1Ab gene. Two constructs PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10 have been used for transformation, but molecular analyses showed that MON810 does not contain any element from PV-ZMGT10 construct and only the elements from construct PV-ZMBK07 have been integrated into its genome. MON810 contains one integrated DNA consisting of P-e35S, I-Hsp70 and cry1Ab. The terminator of the nopaline synthase (nos) gene was lost due to a truncation at the 3' end of the gene cassette during genome integration and is, therefore, not present in MON810.
