Summary of Introduced Genetic Elements Expand

Code Name Type Promoter, other Terminator Copies Form
epsps 5-enol-pyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase HT

H4 promoter from Arabidopsis thaliana; TPotp C transit peptide from corn and sunflower

3’ untranslated region of the histone H4 gene from A. thaliana

2

Gene was modified by site-directed mutagenesis and a methionine codon was inserted at the N-terminal

hppd p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase HT

H4 promoter from Arabidopsis thaliana; TPotp Y transit peptide from corn and sunflower

3’ untranslated region of the nopaline synthase from Agrobacterium tumefaciens

2

Gene was modified by site-directed mutagenesis

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
Zea mays epsps
