DES MOINES, Iowa & BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plant Sensory Systems, LLC and Schillinger Genetics, Inc. have entered into a collaboration to move towards commercialization a new high methionine soybean variety for animal feed. Under the agreement, Plant Sensory Systems receives an exclusive commercial license to Schillinger Genetics’ NAVITA soybean variety that contains the Enhanced-Nutrition (EN) technology developed by Plant Sensory Systems. The EN technology increases several essential amino acids in seeds, including methionine. Conventional soybeans are deficient in methionine. To meet dietary requirements, methionine is added to nearly all soy-based feed. Chemically synthesized methionine (or its analog) is the most common form of the supplemental amino acid in feed. “The level of methionine in the EN soybeans meets the methionine dietary requirements for chicken and fish,” explains Frank Turano, CRO of Plant Sensory Systems. “When used for feed, the EN soybean could reduce the need for amino acid supplementation and as a result would lower feed production costs. The EN technology delivers methionine in feed in a sustainable and economical manner.” “We are excited about the significant enhancement of key amino acids from the EN technology in our high protein, ultra-low antinutrient NAVITA soybeans,” said John Schillinger, president and founder of Schillinger Genetics, Inc. “The NAVITA line has been shown to have superior performance in animal feeds, including poultry, shrimp, and numerous fish species, especially feed-sensitive salmonids.” “Plant Sensory Systems is pleased to partner with Schillinger Genetics, a global leader in developing premium soy-based products,” said Kathleen Turano, president of Plant Sensory Systems. Plant Sensory Systems LLC is a privately held agricultural biotechnology company that develops plant genetic and biochemical solutions for the food, feed, and bio-based industries. The company is located in Baltimore, Maryland at bwtech at UMBC Research and Technology Park. www.plantsensorysystems.com Schillinger Genetics Inc. is a privately held soybean research company that specializes in the development and marketing of soybean varieties selected for improved nutritional composition for food and feed markets.

Soybeans (Glycine max) possessing a novel genetic allele for the production of reduced trypsin inhibitor in seeds is provided. Such alleles can be readily transferred to other soybean lines and cultivars. In a preferred embodiment a soybean plant possesses the combined presence of the Kunitz allele along with the SG-ULTI mutant allele, the combination of which was found to produce an ultra-low trypsin inhibitor phenotype in the resulting progeny seeds of a cross of a Kunitz allele into the 435.TCS background. A seed or seed product is made possible in this instance that is particularly well suited for consumption without extensive processing to remove trypsin inhibitor. The invention also relates to soybean seeds and plants containing the SG-ULTI mutant allele, and to methods for producing a soybean plant containing the SG-ULTI mutant allele produced by crossing a soybean plant containing the SG-ULTI mutant allele with itself or another soybean variety

Soybean seed, plants, and products therefrom having an ultra-low trypsin inhibitor phenotype with no additional chemical or physical heat treatment. Also disclosed are soybeans having the ultra-low trypsin inhibitor phenotype due to the presence of the Kunitz allele and three additional alleles. Also disclosed are soybean seed and plants having a unique content of trypsin inhibitor units and lineage, where said phenotype is due to the interaction or mutations of one or more genes. Also disclosed are plants and plant parts derived from growing the soybean seed herein.


Soybean seeds having an ultra-low raffinose and stachyose phenotype. Also disclosed is a mutant allele of soybean designated SG-ULRFO which results in an ultra-low raffinose and stachyose phenotype. The present invention also relates to a soybean seed, a soybean plant and parts of a soybean plant and a soybean hybrid which comprises the mutant allele. Also disclosed are ultra-low raffinose and stachyose soybean seeds having unexpectedly increased germination rates when compared with soybean lines not having a low raffinose and stachyose seed content. Also disclosed are mutant RS3 and RS4 genes with polymorphisms which contribute to the ultra-low raffinose and stachyose phenotype as described in the present invention. The present invention also relates for method of using the soybean seeds and plants of the present invention, to plants parts derived from the present invention, to methods of producing transgenic plants using the plants and seeds of the present invention.
