Soy line No. 157 was modified to express a model immunogen for production in soybean seed with the insertion of the Escherichia coli LTB gene, which codes for the non-toxic beta subunit of the temperature labile enterotoxin. The gene under the control of the soybean seed-specific glycinin promoter and terminator.

In addition, a DNA fragment coding for hygromycin phosphotransferase was also inserted into the modified plant, which confers  resistance to the antibiotic hygromycin, which is used for selection of transformed soy plants.
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
The LTB gene was plant codon optimized and modified with the substitution of the bacterial signal peptide with a 20 aa signal peptide from A. thaliana basic chitinase. Furthermore a 14 aa extension comprising the FLAG epitope and KDEL ER retention signal, and flanking Bsp120 restriction sites were introduced by PCR.

The final sequence encoded a 137 aa protein of 15.5 kDa that yielded a 13.3 kDa LTB-FLAG protein after signal peptide cleavage.
