Soybean modified for herbicide tolerance
FG72 x A5547-127
The stacked soybean line MST-FGØ72-2 x ACS-GMØØ6-4 was obtained through the traditional cross breading of each of the parental organisms to produce an organism that expresses PAT,  EPSPS and and a modified form of the hppd gene. This results in glufosinate and glyphosate herbicide tolerance as well as toleranca to HPPD inhibitors such as isoxaflutole (IFT).
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.

Characteristics of the modification process
pB2/35SAcK and  pSF10
  • 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-GMØØ6-4; vector pB2/35SAcK
This LMO contains the coding sequence for the phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase (pat) gene. This results in tolerance to the herbicide glufosinate.

DNA insert from MST-FGØ72-2; vector pSF10
Soy FG72 was modified with the insertion of expression cassettes that code for a mutated form of epsps that confers tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide and a modified form of the hppd gene that is tolerant to HPPD inhibitors such as isoxaflutole (IFT).
