Agrisure™ CB/LL/RW maize
EN
Bt11 x MIR604
SYN-BTØ11-1 x SYN-IR6Ø4-5
The stacked maize line SYN-BTØ11-1 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 mCry3A, pmi, Cry1Ab and PAT genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera, and tolerant to glufosinate herbicide and the ability to use mannose as a carbon source.
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.

Characteristics of the modification process
pZM26 and pZO1502
EN
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from Bt11 vector pZO1502
Insect-resistant and herbicide tolerant maize produced by inserting the cry1Ab gene to confer resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis), and the phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (PAT) encoding gene to confer tolerance to phosphinothricin (PPT) herbicide, specifically glufosinate ammonium.

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.
