DAS-68416-4 soybean was modified with the insertion of a gene encoding aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase and phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and glufosinate respectively.
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
Aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase gene sequence from Delftia acidovorans was plant-optimized. The native and plant-optimized DNA sequences of aad-12 are 79.7% identical.

Southern blot analysis indicated that a single, intact insert of the aad-12 and pat genes were stably integrated into the soybean genome. Southern analyses also indicated the absence of the plasmid backbone DNA in DAS-68416-4 soybean.
