Final health and environmental risk assessment of genetically modified cotton GHB614. Scientific opinion on glyphosate-tolerant genetically modified cotton GHB614 from Bayer CropScience for food and feed uses, import and processing under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003 (Application EFSA/GMO/NL/2008/51). Opinion of the Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety.

Genetically modified cotton GHB614 from Bayer CropScience expresses a modified epsps gene (2mepsps) gene from maize encoding the enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate 3-phosphate synthase (2mEPSPS), which confers tolerance to the herbicide glyphosate. Updated bioinformatics analyses of the inserted DNA and flanking sequences in GHB614 have not indicated potential production of putatively harmful toxins or allergens caused by the genetic modification. Genomic stability of the functional insert and consistent expression of the 2mepsps gene has been shown over...
