DAS-59122-7 × SYN-IR6Ø4-5 × DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 × MON-ØØØ21-9
A stacked insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant maize derived from conventional cross-breeding of 59122 x MIR604 x TC1507 x GA21.  Insect resistance is conferred by the cryIF, cry34Ab1, cry3A, and cry35Ab1 genes from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, and glufosinate and glyphosate herbicide tolerance through the pat and EPSPS genes respectively.

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 GA21 vector pDPG434
The 5-enolpyruvyl shikimate-3-phosphate synthase (epsps) gene from maize was modified through site-directed mutagenesis, such that its encoded enzyme was insensitive to inactivation by glyphosate. The resulting gene was used to develop GA21

DNA insert from MIR604 vector pZM26
Cry3A gene was modified for enhanced expression in maize and such that the amino acid sequence of the synthetic version of Cry3A is the same as the native protein, except for the modified serine-protease recognition site. The pmi gene encodes the enzyme phosphomannose isomerase (PMI) that allows the plants to utilise mannose as a carbon source and is used as a selectable marker.

DNA insert from 59122 vector PHP17662
The cry34Ab1 and cry35Ab1 genes, isolated from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) strain PS149B1, produce the insect control proteins (delta-endotoxins) Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1. The pat gene was isolated from the soil bacterium Streptomyces viridochromogenes and confers tolerance to herbicides containing glufosinate ammonium.

DNA insert from TC1507 vector PHI8999A
TC1507 modified with the insertion of the Cry1F geneto confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis). A transformation cassette coding for phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide tolerance, specifically glufosinate ammonium, was also inserted into the organism.
