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.
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.
- Agrobacterium-mediated DNA transfer
CaMV Enhanced 35S promoter
Elongation factor EF-1alpha promoter
Elongation factor EF-1alpha Leader
Elongation factor EF-1alpha Intron 1
Chloroplast transit peptide 2
5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase gene
rbcS-E9 gene terminator
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
