B/BE/20/V1 VIB Maize Scientific field evaluation of maize with modified growth characteristics

Modified growth characteristics resulting from the additional expression of the AN3 gene under the control of the EF1a promoter. This gene is a transcriptional co-activator that is involved in the regulation of cell proliferation. As a result of the modification the duration of growth is elongated which results in the formation of larger plant organs such as larger leaves. It is also results in the formation of more biomass.

B/BE/19/V1 VIB Maize Wetenschappelijk veldonderzoek naar maïs als biosensor voor het meten van DNA-schade als gevolg van milieustress

The maize plants have been edited using the CRISPR/Cas9 system resulting in the mutation of either the ATR or ATM gene. There are three events: one event with one additional DNA basepair in the ATR gene, one event with one additional DNA basepair in the ATM gene and one event with a 1272 bp deletion in the ATR gene. The result of these alterations is that these genes are no longer functional. The ATR and ATM genes gene plays a role in the repair of DNA damage and in these plants faults in the DNA are believed to accumulate to a higher degree.

B/BE/18/V8 VIB Maize Scientific field evaluation of maize with an impaired DNA-repair mechanism and maize with modified growth characteristics

Maize plants edited using the CRISPR/Cas9 system resulting in a single base pair mutation in either the ALT gene (that plays a role in the repair of DNA damage) or the NGAL2 gene (a transcription factor that has been shown to negatively affect the expression of the PLA1 gene coding for a cytochrome P450 mono-oxygenase enzyme).

B/BE/17/V3 VIB Maize Scientific field evaluation of maize with modified growth characteristics

Modified growth characteristics resulting from the additional expression of two genes: (1) the GA20oxidase under the control of a pUBIL promoter and (2) the PLA1 gene (also known as the ‘KLUH’ gene, or CYP78A1 gene) under the control of the GA2oxidase promoter

B/BE/14/V2 VIB Maize Scientific field evaluation of maize with modified growth characteristics

Modified growth characteristics resulting from the additional expression of the CYP78A1 gene (encoding cytochrome P450 mono-oxygenase) under the control of the GA2oxidase promoter
