The range and stability of expression of the transgenic CryIA(b) protein was examined in Ciba Seeds Bt maize plants derived from Event 176. Specifically, CryIA(b) levels were determined for: (1) various plant tissues and developmental stages in three maize lines from 1993 field tests; (2) pollen and leaves from plants representing four backcross generations of two genotypes; (3) leaves of 6 precommercial hybrids; and (4) silage from one Bt maize hybrid. Significant levels were found only in… CONTINUE READING
