LMO name
Enlist E3™ Soybean
Transformation event
Unique identifier
DAS-44406-6 soybean was modified with the insertion of a gene encoding aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase and phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and glufosinate respectively. Further more a gene encoding a modified version of the EPSPS gene was inserted to confer tolerance to glyphosate.
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
Molecular characterization by Southern blot analyses of DAS-444Ø6-6 soybean confirmed that a single, intact DNA insert containing the aad-12, 2mepsps and pat gene expression cassettes was stably integrated into the soybean genome. Southern blot analyses also confirmed the absence of the plasmid backbone DNA in DAS-444Ø6-6 soybean. The integrity of the inserted DNA was demonstrated in five different breeding generations. Data from segregating generations confirmed the predicted Mendelian inheritance pattern. These data confirmed the stability of DAS-444Ø6-6 soybean during traditional breeding procedures.

The H4A748 promoter also includes an intron from the Histone 3 gene from Arabidopsis thaliana.
