Characteristics of Glycine max (Soybean) Expand

Center of Origin Reproduction Toxins Allergenicity

Southeast Asia; wild soybean species endemic in China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan.

Self-polinated; rarely displays any dormancy characteristics; does not compete well with other cultivated plants.

Raw soybeans contain trypsin inhibitors, which are toxin when eaten.

Soy allergies are common, and eating soy products can cause rashes and swelling of the skin in sensitive individuals.

Donor Organism Characteristics Expand

Latin Name Gene Pathogenicity
Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki cry1Ac

Although target insects are susceptible to oral doses of Bt proteins, there is no evidence of toxic effects in laboratory mammals or bird given up to 10 µg protein / g body wt. There are no significant mammalian toxins or allergens associated with the host organism.

Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki cry1Ac

Although target insects are susceptible to oral doses of Bt proteins, there is no evidence of toxic effects in laboratory mammals or bird given up to 10 µg protein / g body wt. There are no significant mammalian toxins or allergens associated with the host organism.

Streptomyces viridochromogenes pat

S. viridochromogenes is ubiquitous in the soil. It exhibits very slight antimicrobial activity, is inhibited by streptomycin, and there have been no reports of adverse affects on humans, animals, or plants.
