LMO name
GlyTol™ Liberty Link™ cotton
Transformation event
GHB614 x LLCotton25 (a.k.a. GT x LL or Glytol x LL)
Unique identifier
Bayer Crop Science K.K
Marunouchi Kitaguchi Building, 1-6-5, Marunouchi
Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo
GHB614 × LLCotton25 has been obtained by cross breeding between two living modified cotton parental lines: GHB614 and LLCotton25.

The stacked LMO GHB614 × LLCotton25 inherited the following traits from the parental lines: tolerance to glyphosate from GHB614 and tolerance to glufosinate ammonium herbicides from LLCotton25.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
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.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
DNA insert from GHB614 vector pTEM2
The T-DNA cassette from this LM cotton line contained the 2mepsps coding sequence which confers tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide.

DNA insert from LLCotton25 vector pGSV71
The T-DNA cassette from teh LLCotton25 line contined the coding sequence for the bar gene which confers tolerance to the glufosinate herbicide.

For additional information on this LMO, please refer to the records of the parental LMO.
