Herbicide tolerant soybean
A2704-12 x A5547-127
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.
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.
  • BCH-ORGA-SCBD-10453-6 Organism Glycine max (Soybean, Soya bean, Soya, SOYBN)
  • BCH-LMO-SCBD-14764-9 Living Modified Organism ACS-GMØØ5-3 - Herbicide-tolerant soybean
    Bayer CropScience | Resistance to herbicides (Glufosinate)
  • BCH-LMO-SCBD-14857-8 Living Modified Organism ACS-GMØØ6-4 - Liberty Link™ soybean
    Bayer CropScience | Resistance to herbicides (Glufosinate)
Characteristics of the modification process
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
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.
