OECD Unique Identifier details

IND-ØØ41Ø-5 x MON-Ø4Ø32-6
Commodity: Soyabean / Soybeans
Traits: Drought tolerance,Glyphosate tolerance
Name of product applicant: INDEAR S.A.
Summary of application:

The soybean plants carrying the accumulated events IND-41Ø-5 x MON-Ø4Ø32-6 have been obtained by conventional crossing of the simple parental events IND-41Ø-5 and MON-Ø4Ø32-6 and have tolerance to abiotic stresses (drought , salinity, mechanical damage and herbivory) and tolerance to glyphosate.

Summary of the safety assessment (food safety):
• Inheritance studies conducted indicated that Mendelian segregation exists. • New expression proteins are expressed in low levels. • It is compositionally equivalent to its non-transgenic counterpart. • No evidence of similarity or homology was found with known toxic proteins. • There is no evidence of expression of known allergenic substances for the proteins expressed in the event. • There is no hypothesis of risk that indicates that there are effects of metabolic interactions and between the proteins of the events when they are accumulated. It is concluded that soybean IND-ØØ41Ø-5 x MON-Ø4Ø32-6 is substantially equivalent to its conventional counterpart, therefore, it is as safe and no less nutritious than conventional commercial soybean varieties.
Where detection method protocols and appropriate reference material (non-viable, or in certain circumstances, viable) suitable for low-level situation may be obtained:

Country introduction:

In Argentina, the food and feed risk assessment process of transformation events, as the result of modern biotechnology, is carried out by the National Service for Agrifood Health and Quality (Senasa). The General Office of Biotechnology, is the area responsible for carrying out this task. It has an specific professional team and the advise of a Technical Advisory Committee composed of experts from several scientific disciplines representing different sectors involved in the production, industrialization, consumption, research and development of genetically modified organisms.

Stacked events:

Stacked events with all single events approved, are assessed as a new event, but with much less requirements, always on a case-by-case basis.
