MON 87708 soybean line was developed as a marker-free LMO to exhibit tolerance to dicamba (3,6-dichloro-2-methoxybenzoic acid) herbicide. 
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 PV-GMHT4355  plasmid contained a second T-DNA cassette that encoded for the glyphosate tolerant form of EPSPS. The cassette contained the following elements in an antisense orientation to the dicamba expression cassette: P-FMV>> L-DnaK>> TS-CTP2>> CS-C4 EPSPS>> T-E9.

Southern blot analysis indicated that this expression cassette was not integrated into the MON87708 line and neither were any elements of the vector backbone.

Southern blot analysis and sequencing analysis indicated that a single intact dicamba expression cassette was integrated into the MON87708 line.
