MON-87427-7 × MON-87419-8 × MON-ØØ6Ø3-6
Commodity: Corn / Maize
Traits: Glyphosate tolerance,Dicamba tolerance,Glufosinate tolerance
Argentina
Name of product applicant: Monsanto Argentina S.A.I.C.
Summary of application:

The accumulation of events of corn MON 87427 × MON 87419 × NK603 is the result of the conventional crossing of the individual events MON 87427, MON 87419 and NK603 developed by Monsanto through modern biotechnology techniques, which confer to the corn plant tolerance to herbicides formulated based on dicamba, glufosinate and glyphosate.
The event MON 87427 presents tissue-selective tolerance to glyphosate, which facilitates the production of hybrid corn seed. MON 87427 corn expresses the cp4 epsps gene under a combination of promoter and specific intron that allows the expression of the protein 5-enolpiruvil-shikimate-3-phosphate synthase from Agrobacterium sp. strain CP4 (CP4 EPSPS) in all tissues of the plant, except in the male reproductive tissues key to the development of pollen, where it has a very limited or no expression. Therefore, in MON 87427 maize, the application of this herbicide in specific stages of the development of the crop, induces male sterility facilitating the production of hybrid seed.
The MON 87419 event produces the dicamba mono-oxygenase (DMO) protein that gives the plant tolerance to dicamba-based herbicides, and the protein phosphinothricin acetyltransferase (PAT), whose expression gives plants the characteristic of tolerance to herbicides formulated based on glufosinate.
The NK603 event produces the CP4 EPSPS protein, which gives the plant tolerance for the application of herbicides formulated on the basis of glyphosate.

Summary of the safety assessment (food safety):
• Inheritance studies conducted indicated that Mendelian segregation exists. • New expression proteins are expressed in low levels. • It is compositionally equivalent to its non-transgenic counterpart. • No evidence of similarity or homology was found with known toxic proteins. • There is no evidence of expression of known allergenic substances for the proteins expressed in the event. • There is no hypothesis of risk that indicates that there are effects of metabolic interactions and between the proteins of the events when they are accumulated. It is concluded that the stacked event is substantially equivalent to its conventional counterpart, therefore, it is as safe and no less nutritious than conventional commercial varieties.

Country introduction:

In Argentina, the food and feed risk assessment process of transformation events, as the result of modern biotechnology, is carried out by the National Service for Agrifood Health and Quality (Senasa). The General Office of Biotechnology, is the area responsible for carrying out this task. It has an specific professional team and the advise of a Technical Advisory Committee composed of experts from several scientific disciplines representing different sectors involved in the production, industrialization, consumption, research and development of genetically modified organisms.

Stacked events:

Stacked events with all single events approved, are assessed as a new event, but with much less requirements, always on a case-by-case basis.

Country introduction:

The 4525 decree of 2005, established the Ministry of Health and Social Protection as the competent authority for GMO for health and food purposes and creates the National Biosafety Technical Committee for GMO's used in health and food purposes (CTNSalud).

The CTNSalud is composed by the Ministry of Health and Social Protection, the National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute (INVIMA) and the Technology and Innovation Administrative Department (COLCIENCIAS). This committee is responsible for the assesment of risk assessments; to inquire for any additional information; assessment of any measurements in accordance to the Cartagena Protocol; and the recommendation for the authorization of GMO for health or food purposes.
