A stacked insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant maize. Insect resistance is conferred by the cry34Ab1, cry35Ab1 and cryIF genes from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, and glufosinate-ammonium herbicide tolerance through the pat gene from Streptomyces viridochromogenes.
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.

  • DAS-59122-7 x DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 x MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 - Herculex XTRA™ Roundup Ready™ 2 maize
    | Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. | Resistance to diseases and pests (Insects, Coleoptera (beetles), Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths)), Resistance to herbicides (Glufosinate, Glyphosate)
  • DP-Ø32316-8 - Insect Resistant, Herbicide Tolerant Maize
    | Resistance to diseases and pests - Insects - Coleoptera (beetles), Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) Resistance to herbicides - Glufosinate
Characteristics of the modification process
  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
The [poly]ubiquitin gene promoter element is made up of  the promoter region (900bp) and the 5’ untranslated region (83bp) of the [poly]ubiquitin gene

Southern blot analyses indicated that a single, intact transformation cassette was inserted into the genome of 4114 maize with no integration of the backbone of plasmid PHP27118.
