The endosperm-specific expression of the sucrose transporter HvSUT1 in HOSUT wheat leads to increased sucrose uptake into the endosperm that might be used in the amino acid biosynthesis process. Therefore, an increase in the protein content in the wheat grains is expected.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
By transformation of wheat with the vector pPZP 200 the sucrose transporter HvSUT1 was introduced into the wheat genome. Since HvSUT1 is put under the control of the endopserm-specific hordein promoter B1 and the corresponding hordein terminator, HvSUT1 is exclusively expressed within the endosperm during the phase of increased protein biosynthesis in wheat grains.

This is meant to optimize the carbohydrate supply for increased levels of protein biosynthesis.

Simultaneously, the vector pJFBar was co-transformed to mediate resistance towards phospinotricine (PPT, Glufosinate) to be used as a selective marker system.
