MON89034 (OECD UI: MON-89Ø34-1) is a maize genetically modified event developed by the Monsanto Company. MON 89034 is an insect resistant maize expressing the CRY1A.105 and CRY2Ab proteins..[1]. Similarly to MON810, Bt11 and TC1507, MON89034 was developed as a tool for lepidopteran insect pest protection.

Modification method and newly inserted proteins[edit | edit source]

MON 89034 is an insect resistant maize expressing the CRY1A.105 and CRY2Ab proteins for lepidopteran insect pest protection.[2]. The PV-ZMIR245 vector was used for the transformation[3]. This 17600bp vector contains two T-DNAs[4]. The first T-DNA contains the CRY1A.105 and CRY2Ab cassettes. The second T-DNA contains a selection marker used during the transformation process. This second T-DNA was segregated out of the commercial event as demonstrated by Southern blot data[5].

Risk assessment by national authorities[edit | edit source]

In the European Union, MON89034 for food and feed import was assessed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) GMO panel. An opinion was published in 2008[6]. The EFSA GMO panel concluded that "the GM maize MON89034 is as safe as its non genetically modified counterpart with respect to potential effects on human and animal health or the environment. Therefore the GMO Panel concludes that maize MON89034 is unlikely to have any adverse effect on human or animal health or on the environment in the context of its intended uses."

Worldwide authorisations status[edit | edit source]

MON89034 maize has been authorised for food use in Argentina (2010), Australia (2008), Brazil (2009), Canada (2008), Colombia (2010), Japan (2007), Korea (2009), Philippines (2009), Taiwan (2008) and United States (2007)[7].

MON89034 maize has been authorised for feed use in Argentina (2010), Brazil (2009), Canada (2008), Japan (2008), Korea (2009), Philippines (2009) and United States (2007)[8].

MON89034 maize has been authorised for cultivation in Argentina (2010), Brazil (2009), Canada (2008), Japan (2008), and United States (2008)[9].

In the European Union, MON89034 was authorized for food, feed import and processing on 30 October 2009 under Commission Decision 2009/813[10]. If no request for authorisation renewal is submitted, the authorisation will expiration on 29 October 2019.

Detection methods[edit | edit source]

Detection methods for both proteins expressed in MON89034 are available[11]. Gel based, qualitative RT and quantitative RT PCR methods are available[12][13]. PCR detection method provided by the developer has been validated independently by the EURL in 2008[14].

Stack products containing MON89034[edit | edit source]

  • MON89034 x NK603 (also known as VT double PRO)[15]
  • MON88017 x MON89034 (also known as VT Triple PRO)[16]
  • MON89034 x TC1507 x MON88017 x 59122 (also known as Smartstax)[17]

Promotion, branding and patent[edit | edit source]

Although the YieldGard VT Pro brand appears to apply to MON89034[18] [19], that name is not associated with the product on the developper webpage [20] MON89034 patent was filled in 2007 in the US under the US 8062840 number.

Controversies[edit | edit source]

No specific controversies applies to the transformation event MON89034. However, generic controversies on GM-technology applied to food uses are available.

Independent peer-reviewed and grey literature concerning MON89034[edit | edit source]

The baseline sensitivity to the MON89034 Cry proteins has been determined in India for Chilo partellus (Swinhoe), Sesamia inferens (Walker) and Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner)[21]
