Intacta™ Roundup Ready™ 2 Pro soybean
MON87701 x MON89788
MON-877Ø1-2 × MON-89788-1
The stacked soybean line MON-877Ø1-2 x MON-89788-1 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce a soybean that expresses each of Cry1Ac and EPSPS genes. The expression of these genes are expected to confer resistance to Lepidoptera and tolerance to glyphosate herbicide.
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.

Characteristics of the modification process
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from MON-877Ø1-2, vector PV-GMIR9
The soy plant was modified with the insertion of the Cry1Ac protein which provides protection from feeding damage caused by targeted lepidopteran pests, such as primary target pests velvetbean caterpillar (Anticarcia gemmatalis), soybean looper (Pseudoplusia includens), soybean anxil borer (Epinotia aporema), and sunflower looper (Rachiplusia nu). The parental organism was also transformed with a second T-DNA cassette which contains a cp4 epsps coding sequence, however analysis has shown that this cassette segregated out of the LMO during the development process.

DNA insert from MON-89788-1, vector PV-GMGOX20
MON89788 is a second-generation glyphosate-tolerant soybean product, was developed by introduction of the cp4 epsps gene cassette consisting of a chimeric promoter sequence derived from Arabidopsis thaliana Tsf1 gene promoter and enhancer sequences and from the 35S of the Figwort Mosaic Virus.
