The stacked maize line MON87427 x MON89034 x TC1507 x MON88017 x 59122 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a maize that expresses each of EPSPS,   Cry1A.105, Cry2Ab2, Cry1F, PAT, Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate herbicide and glyphosate herbicide

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.

  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from TC1507 vector PHI8999A
TC1507 modified with the insertion of the Cry1F gene to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis). A transformation cassette coding for phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide tolerance, specifically glufosinate ammonium, was also inserted into the organism.

DNA insert from 59122 vector PHP17662
The cry34Ab1 and cry35Ab1 genes, isolated from the common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) strain PS149B1, produce the insect control proteins (delta-endotoxins) Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1. The pat gene was isolated from the soil bacterium Streptomyces viridochromogenes and confers tolerance to herbicides containing glufosinate ammonium.

DNA insert from MON89034 vector PV-ZMIR245
Maize line MON89034 expresses two Bt-toxins encoded by the genes cry1A.105 and cry2Ab2 from Bacillus thuringiensis that confer resistance against certain lepidopteran pests.

DNA insert from MON87427, vector PV-ZMAP1043
MON87427 was modifies to express the CP4 EPSPS protein which confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate. The e35S-hsp70 promoter and intron combination is used to drive the tissue selective expression of the cp4 epsps gene resulting in CP4 EPSPS protein production in vegetative and female reproductive tissue, providing tolerance to glyphosate within these tissues.
