GlyTol cotton event GHB614 contains a stably integrated gene 2mepsps. The 2mepsps gene was generated by introducing mutations into the wild-type epsps (wt epsps) gene from maize, leading to a double mutant EPSPS protein with two amino acid substitutions (2mEPSPS). This modification confers the protein a decreased binding affinity for glyphosate, allowing it to maintain sufficient enzymatic activity in the presence of the herbicide. Therefore, the plants bearing this gene are tolerant to glyphosate herbicides.

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.

  • Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
Southern blot analysis indicated that a single insertion of the complete T-DNA as constructed occurred in the GHB614 line. There was no indication that any portion of the vector backbone also integrated into the GHB614 line.
