GMAC has conducted a thorough evaluation of the application for approval for importation for release [sale/placing on the market - for direct use as food, feed and for processing (FFP)] of a product of a Living Modified Organism (Imidazolinone-Tolerant CV127 soybean) and has determined that the release of this product does not endanger biological diversity or human, animal and plant health. GMAC recommends that the proposed application for release be APPROVED WITH TERMS AND CONDITIONS subject to approval by other relevant agencies.
LMO detection and identification methods proposed
The event-specific method for the quantification of CV127 soybean is based on a real-time quantitative TaqMan PCR procedure to determine the relative content of CV127 to total soybean DNA in a sample. The protocol was shown to be capable of detecting 0.04 % CV127 soybean DNA in a mixture of non-transgenic soybean DNA. The protocol consists of a method module for DNA extraction from soybeans and a method module for event-specific quantification of CV127 soybean DNA. For quantitative event-specific detection of CV127 soybean two real-time PCR systems are used: a soybean-specific reference PCR system and a PCR system for event- specific detection of CV127 soybean. The soybean-specific reference PCR system is based on the sequences of the soybean Le1 (lectin) gene. The event-specific real- time PCR system for CV127 soybean is located at the 3' insert-to-genomic soybean DNA junction. The forward primer-binding site is located in the CV127 insert, the binding site of the reverse primer is within genomic soybean DNA and the binding site of the probe spans the junction between the CV127 insert and genomic DNA.
