(a)

cassette 1:

a synthetic version of the truncated cry1F gene derived from Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. aizawai, which confers resistance to the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) and certain other lepidopteran pests such as the pink borer (Sesamia spp.), fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda), black cutworm (Agrotis ipsilon) and southwestern corn borer (Diatraea grandiosella), under the regulation of the ubiquitin promoter ubiZM1(2) derived from Zea mays and the ORF25PolyA terminator from Agrobacterium tumefaciens pTi15955;

(b)

cassette 2:

a synthetic version of the pat gene derived from Streptomyces viridochromogenes strain Tü494, which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate-ammonium, under the regulation of the 35S Cauliflower Mosaic Virus promoter and terminator sequences.

2.The consent shall cover grains from progeny derived from crosses of maize line 1507 with any traditionally bred maize as or in products.
