Cotton modified with the insertion of transformation cassette containing the Dicamba monooxygenase (DMO) gene and Bialaphos resistance (BAR) gene to confer resistance to the herbicides Dicamba and Glufosinate 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.
Cotton Variety Coker 130
  • Cotton transformation events tolerant to the herbicides Dicamba and Glufosinate
    | 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.
Southern Blot and sequence analysis indicated that the transformation cassette was inserted into the MON88701 genome at a single intact locus containing all the genetic elements. There was no detection of vector backbone sequences.
