  • Patent number: 10934330
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for controlling pests are disclosed. In particular, methods for modulating the activity of Cry1Ba proteins against lepidopteran or coleopteran pests are provided. Further, mutant Cry1Ba proteins having modulated insecticidal activity compared to native Cry1Ba proteins are disclosed.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20200190533
    Abstract: A novel transgenic corn elite event designated MZIR098 is disclosed. The invention relates to DNA sequences of the recombinant constructs inserted into the corn genome and of genomic sequences flanking the insertion site that resulted in elite event MZIR098. The invention further relates to assays for detecting the presence of the DNA sequences of corn elite event MZIR098, to corn plants and corn seeds comprising the genotype thereof, and to methods for producing a corn plant by crossing a corn plant comprising the elite event MZIR098 genotype with itself or another corn variety.

  • Patent number: 10167323
    Abstract: Improved compositions and methods for controlling pests are disclosed. In particular, nucleic acid molecules encoding novel engineered Cry1Ba (eCry1Ba) proteins having improved toxicity to lepidopteran insect pests are provided. By substituting at least one amino acid in domain I of a Cry1Ba protein an engineered Cry1Ba protein having substantially altered insecticidal properties is designed. Further, methods of making and using the ecry1Ba nucleic acid sequences, for example in transgenic plants to express eCry1B proteins to confer protection from insect damage are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20180291397
    Abstract: Engineered pesticidal polypeptides that are highly active against a wide range of pests and methods of making such polypeptides are disclosed. The nucleotide sequences encoding the pesticidal polypeptide can be used to transform various prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, which organisms can be used to produce the pesticidal polypeptides. The recombinant organisms and/or the polypeptides produced by the recombinant organisms can be used to control pests in various environments.
