Conkesta Enlist E3™ Soybean
DAS-81419-2 x DAS-44406-6
DAS-81419-2 × DAS-444Ø6-6
The stacked soybean line Conkesta Enlist E3™ was created through the conventional cross-breeding of the LM cotton lines DAS-44406-6 and DAS-81419-2 to express aad-12, 2mepsps and pat genes to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), glyphosate and glufosinate respectively. The LM plant also expresses Cry1F and Cry1Ac each of which expresses insecticidal crystal proteins thus conferring resistance against lepidoptera.
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
pDAB8264 and pDAB9582
  • Cross breeding
Some of these genetic elements may be present as fragments or truncated forms. Please see notes below, where applicable.
DNA insert from DAS-44406-6 vector pDAB8264
DAS-44406-6 soybean was modified with the insertion of a gene encoding aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase and phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase to confer tolerance to the herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and glufosinate respectively. Further more a gene encoding a modified version of the EPSPS gene was inserted to confer tolerance to glyphosate.

DNA insert from DAS-81419-2 vector pDAB9582
Soy line DAS-81419-2 was transformed with the insertion of Cry1F and Cry1Ac to confer resistance to lepidopteran insects as well as the insertion of the pat gene which results in the synthesis of phosphinothricin N-acetyltransferase thus coffering tolerance to glufosinate herbicides.
