DAS-40278-9 corn was modified with the insertion of a plant optimised coding sequence for aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) acetyl coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors.

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.

  • Direct DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
The LMO was generated using the Whiskers mediated transformation method. The aad-1 coding sequence was modified for plant-optimized expression.

Southern blot analysis indicated that a single complete copy of the transformation cassette was stably integrated into the host genome at a single locus. Additionally tests showed that there was no integration of segments from the vector backbone.
