We have examined transgene inheritance in over 300 progeny of a line of soybean (Glycine max) transformed by particle bombardment with a construct containing bovine β-casein under the control of the soybean lectin 5′ and 3′ regulatory elements. Four copies of the casein transgene, located at a single locus, exhibit a high frequency of recombination that resulted in novel patterns in approximately 16% of the progeny in both the T1 and T2 generations. Characterization of the transgene locus using… CONTINUE READING
