The soybean was modified to express Agrobacterium tumefaciens CP4 EPSPS and Streptomyces viridochromogenes PAT proteins for tolerance to glyphosate and glufosinate herbicides, respectively. The bacterial CP4 EPSPS functions similarly to the endogenous enzyme, but has a greatly reduced affinity for glyphosate. The PAT protein detoxifes L-phosphinothricin (glufosinate) via the acetylation of the primary amino group.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Transcription of the Agrobacterium tumefaciens 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (cp4 epsps) commences from the Glycine max Elongation factor 1 alpha promoter and terminates at the Pisum sativum  ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase, small subunit (rbcS E9) terminator. An Arabidopsis thaliana chloroplast peptide 2 segment was added to the 5' end of cp4 epsps to target the final protein product to the chloroplast. The soy EF1α promoter is expected to promote high levels of transcription.

Streptomyces viridochromogenes Phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (pat) gene is under control of the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus (CaMV) 35S promoter and terminator. Elevated levels of transcription of pat are expected due to the CaMV 35S promoter. The protein is expected to remain in the cytoplasm of the plant cells.
