The event CTC95019-5 was obtained through the genetic transformation of the sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) cultivar CTC9005HP for resistance to insects. To achieve Lepidoptera resistance, the sugarcane expresses Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1Ac, which forms pores in the midgut of larvae and leads to death. In addition, the modified sugarcane expresses Escherichia coli neomycin phosphotransferase II, which acts as a marker for kanamycin selection during transformation.
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.

The sugarcane event was obtained through Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation to transfer a DNA fragment (T-DNA) containing the expression cassettes for Bacillus thuringiensis cry1Ac and Escherichia coli nptII genes. The cry1Ac coding sequence is under control of the Zea mays ubiquitin promoter and Agrobacterium tumefaciens nopaline synthase terminator. The nptII coding sequence is under control of the Zea mays ubiquitin promoter and Agrobacterium tumefaciens nopaline synthase terminator.
- The vector used to create CTC95019-5 is the same as CTC93204-9.
- The orientation (direction) of the genetic constructs and number of T-DNA insertions is not available at this time.
