Fertility Restored Herbicide Tolerant Canola
73496 x RF3
DP-Ø73496-4 × ACS-BNØØ3-6
The stacked canola line DP-Ø73496-4 x ACS-BNØØ3-6 was obtained through the conventional cross breeding of each of the parental organisms.  This results in a line with fertility restoration capabilities and  displaying glufosinate and glyphosate herbicide tolerance.
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.

DNA insert from ACS-BNØØ3-6 vector pTHW118
ACS-BNØØ3-6 is a fertility restorer canola line that inhibits the action of the barnase ribonuclease through the expression of the barstar gene. The line also contributes a copy of the bar gene which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.

DNA insert from DP-Ø73496-4 vector PHP28181
Canola modified for tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide through the insertion of the Glyphosate-N-Acteyltransferase gat4621 gene.
