The composition of transgenic DAS-68416-4 soybean seed and forage was compared with that of non-transgenic soybean. DAS-68416-4 soybean expresses the aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase-12 enzyme from the soil bacterium, Delftia acidovorans, which detoxifies 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), conferring tolerance to this herbicide. DAS-68416-4 also expresses the phosphinothricin acetyltransferase enzyme from Streptomyces viridochromogenes which confers tolerance to glufosinate-ammonium herbicides. As expected for an input trait, results indicate that DAS-68416 soybean is compositionally equivalent to non-transgenic soybean.
