Insect resistant, herbicide tolerant maize
EN
MIR162 x NK603
Yes
SYN-IR162-4 × MON-ØØ6Ø3-6
A stacked maize line SYN-IR162-4 x MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 obtained through conventional breeding of each of the parental organisms. The modifications in these lines confer tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide and resistance to Lepidopteran pests.
EN
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 NK603 vector PV-ZMGT32:
59122 x NK603 also contains a form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate. The glyphosate-tolerant EPSPS gene was isolated from the CP4 strain of the common soil bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens.

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. Event MIR162 maize also contains the manA gene from Escherichia coli, which encodes the selectable marker, phosphomannose isomerase (PMI).
