The development of MON 87769 involved the introduction of two desaturase genes, Primulae juliae  Δ6 desaturase (Pj.D6D) and  Neurospora crassa  Δ15 desaturase (Nc.Fad3) that result in the seed-specific production of the PjΔ6D and NcΔ15D proteins. This results in the increased synthesis of stearidonic acid (SDA) in the LM soybean.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Vector PV-GMPQ1972 contains two T-DNAs. The first T-DNA (T-DNA I) region, contains two expression cassettes: the Pj.D6D gene expression cassette and the Nc.Fad3 gene expression cassette.  The second  T-DNA region (T-DNA II), contains the cp4 epsps gene expression cassette that was used for early event selection, and was segregated away from T-DNA I by conventional breeding (self-pollination).  The T-DNA I region containing the Pj.D6D and Nc.Fad3  gene expression cassettes is the portion of plasmid PV-GMPQ1972 maintained in MON 87769.
