The stacked maize line SYN-BTØ11-1 x SYN-IR162-4 x SYN-IR6Ø4-5 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of Cry1Ab, mCry3A, PAT, Vip3Aa, and PMI genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate herbicide and allows the LMO to use mannose as a carbon source.

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.

Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from Bt 11 vector pZO1502
Maize produced by inserting the cry1Ab gene from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis), and the phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) encoding gene from Streptomyces viridochromogenes to confer tolerance to phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide, specifically glufosinate ammonium.

DNA insert from MIR162 vector pNOV1300
MIR162 maize is transformed with vip3Aa20 gene which encodes the Vip3Aa20 protein that confers resistance against lepidopteran insect pests  i it also contains the manA gene from Escherichia coli, which encodes the selectable marker, phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).

DNA insert from MIR604 vector pZM26
MIR604 is a genetically modified maize developed to confer field protection against corn root worms. The mcry3A gene from Bacillus thuringiensis codes for a  Bt-toxin (Cry3A), which confers resistance to western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera), northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica longicornis barberi) and other related coleopteran species.
