Introduction Expand

TC1507 x MON810 x MIR162 is a stacked event variety expressing three Bt proteins to confer resistance to lepidopteran insects (Cry1Ab, Cry1F, Vip3A) and one protein (PAT protein) conferring tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium.

Characteristics of Zea mays (Maize) Expand

Center of Origin Reproduction Toxins Allergenicity

Mesoamerican region, now Mexico and Central America

Cross-pollination via wind-borne pollen is limited, pollen viability is about 30 minutes. Hybridization reported with teosinte species and rarely with members of the genus Tripsacum.

No endogenous toxins or significant levels of antinutritional factors.

Although some reported cases of maize allergy, protein(s) responsible have not been identified.

Donor Organism Characteristics Expand

Latin Name Gene Pathogenicity
Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki cry1Ac

Although target insects are susceptible to oral doses of Bt proteins, there is no evidence of toxic effects in laboratory mammals or bird given up to 10 µg protein / g body wt. There are no significant mammalian toxins or allergens associated with the host organism.

Escherichia coli (K-12) hyg

Escherichia coli is one of a number of microorganisms which are normal inhabitants of the colons of virtually all warm-blooded mammals. Ecoli belongs to the taxonomic family known asEnterobacteriaceae, which is one of the best-defined groups of bacteria. The strain Ecoli K-12 is a debilitated strain which does not normally colonize the human intestine. It has also been shown to survive poorly in the environment, has a history of safe commercial use, and is not known to have adverse effects on microorganisms or plants. 

Bacillus thuringiensis strain AB88 5AT

While target lepidopteran insects are susceptible to oral doses of VIP proteins, there is no evidence of toxic effects in laboratory mammals, in birds, and in non-target arthropods, including beneficial insects.

Streptomyces viridochromogenes pat

S. viridochromogenes is ubiquitous in the soil. It exhibits very slight antimicrobial activity, is inhibited by streptomycin, and there have been no reports of adverse affects on humans, animals, or plants.

Bacillus thuringiensis var. aizawai cry1F While target insects are susceptible to oral doses of Bt proteins, no evidence of toxic effects in laboratory mammals or birds.
