Testbiotech comment on EFSA GMO Panel, 2018, Assessment of genetically engineered cotton GHB614 x LLCotton25 x MON15985 for food and feed uses, from Bayer CropScience

Stacked GHB614 x LL25 cotton was produced by crossing genetically engineered cotton lines to make the stacked event resistant to glyphosate (GHB614) and glufosinate (LL25). Owing to further crossings with MON15985 cotton, the final stacked plants produce two insecticidal proteins (Cry1Ac and Cry2Ab2). In addition, the plants produce proteins that confer resistance to antibiotics (NPTII and AAD) as well as the GUS protein that was used as a histochemical marker during product development.
