LMO name
Herbicide tolerant soybean
Transformation event

Research Triangle Park, NC
United States of America, 27709
The stacked soy line ACS-GMØØ5-3 x ACS-GMØØ6-4 was obtained through the traditional cross breeding of each of the parental organisms to produce soy that expresses phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase which confers tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.
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
DNA insert from ACS-GMØØ5-3 and ACS-GMØØ6-4 vector pB2/35SAcK
Both parental organisms contained identical transformation cassettes, transformed with the same vector, containing the coding sequence for the phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (pat) gene. This results in an LMO containing two copies of the transformation cassette with tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.

For additional information on this LMO, please refer to the records of the parental LMOs.
