A stacked insect-resistant and increased-lysine maize derived from conventional cross-breeding of REN-ØØØ38-3 and MON-ØØ81Ø-6.  An increase in content of the amino acid lysine is produced through incorporation of the cordapA gene and resistance to lepidopteran insects from the cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki. The nptII gene insert was removed using the Cre/Lox system following genetic transformation and selection.
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 MON810, Vectors PV-ZMBK07 and PV-ZMGT10
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.

DNA Insert from LY038, Vector PV-ZMPQ76
The linear DNA fragment used in the transformation included two expression cassettes, each with a single copy of a gene: cordapA, and  nptII. The 3′ nontranslated region of the globulin 1 gene contains the polyadenylation signal.The nptII gene cassette confers the paromomycin resistance that permits the selection of cells containing the expression cassette. The selectable marker gene nptII was used during the initial transformation and tissue culture process, and was removed using the Cre/Lox system following selection of the line.

Additional Information
Additional Information
LY038 x MON810 is a product of traditional plant breeding, and therefore is not automatically subject to regulation in all jurisdictions as are transgenic plants resulting from recombinant DNA technologies. Certain jurisdictions may request notification in advance of the release of a stacked hybrid, or may request information to conduct an environmental and food safety assessment.
