  • Patent number: 10487339
    Abstract: Described herein are transgenic soybean chromosomes containing a recombinant DNA that transcribes to an RNA molecule that hybridizes to and forms a cleavage-resistant duplex with either a mature miR171 miRNA or a transcript of a target gene having a recognition site for a mature miR171 miRNA whereby the function of the miR171 miRNA is inhibited and thereby imparts enhanced agronomic traits to soybean plants such as increased pods per node, increased number of nodes, a decreased distance between nodes, and a twisted stem.
