MON531
( MON-ØØ531-6 )
Bollgard ™ insect protected cotton Cotton line MON531 was genetically engineered to resist cotton bollworm, tobacco budworm and pink bollworm by producing its own insecticide.

INDIA

BNLA-601
The GM cotton line contains cry1Ac gene contained in the publicly-bred cotton variety named Bikaneru Nerma (BN). It was approved for commercial release in the North, Central and South cotton growing areas in India during the Kharif, 2008. This is the first indigenous Bt cotton event developed by the Central Institute of cotton Research (CICR) and the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka. The approval of this Bt cotton helped the farmers in varietal growing areas which were previously disadvantaged because they were unable to benefit from the insect resistant Bt cotton hybrids cultivated widely across all three cotton growing areas.
Event-1
Event-1 is a transgenic cotton line transformed with a modified cry1Ac gene that encodes insecticidal crystalline Cry1Ac delta-endotoxin protein, derived from the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki strain HD73. The introduced cry1Ac gene confers resistance to Helicoverpa armigera (American Bollworm), Pectinophora gossypiella (Pink Bollworm) and Earis vittella (Spotted Bollworm).

Event 3272
( SYN-E3272-5 )
Maize containing thermostable alpha-amylase (for optimised bioethanol production) through introduction of the amy797E gene from Thermococcales (thermostable bacterium), encoding a thermostable alpha-amylase.
This enzyme splits starch into smaller sugar subunits (saccharification). Splitting starch into sugar is the first step in producing bioethanol from plants. Plants like maize naturally contain their own amylases. They get destroyed, however, when maize is subjected to high temperatures for ethanol production. Typically, supplemental amylase preparations must be added. Heat stable amalyse expressed in 3273 makes this step unnecessary.
