LMO name
Soybean modified for increased yield
Transformation event
MON 87712
Unique identifier
800 North Lindbergh Blvd.

MON 87712 is transformed with the insertion of the BBX32 gene from Arabidopsis thaliana. BBX32 interacts with one or more endogenous transcription factors to regulate the plant's day/night processes resulting in the increased availability of assimilates during the reproductive phase of soybean development therefore providing an opportunity for increased soybean yield.
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.
Glycine max - Soybean, Soya bean, Soya, SOYBN

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
Southern blot and sequence analysis indicated that MON 87712 contains a single copy of the BBX32 transformation cassette that is integrated at a single locus.

The analysis also indicated that the EPSPS transformation cassette and plasmid vector backbone sequences are not present in MON 87712
