  • Patent number: 9000263
    Abstract: This invention relates to newly identified polynucleotides and polypeptides in the phytic acid biosynthetic pathways, variants and derivatives of the same; methods for making the polynucleotides, polypeptides, variants, derivatives and antagonists. In particular, the invention relates to polynucleotides encoding inositol polyphosphate 2-kinase (IPP2-K) and polypeptides exhibiting such activity to modulate the phytic acid biosynthesis in such a way as to decrease phytic acid and/or increase the non-phytic acid phosphorous, especially in corn or soy animal feedstuffs.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 4, 2010
    Date of Patent: April 7, 2015
    Assignee: Dow AgroSciences LLC
    Inventors: Mark Allen Thompson, Holly Jean Butler, Yuejin Sun, Vipula Kiran Shukla

  • Patent number: 7901935
    Abstract: This invention encompasses the identification and isolation of genes that confer disease control properties in plants, as well as plants comprising such genes. These genes are derived from the following sources: Nicotiana benthamiana, Oryzae sativa (var. Indica IR7), Papaver rhoeas, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Trichoderma harzianum (Rifai 1295-22). The control conferred is against the one or more of the following phytopathogens: Aspergillus flavus, Cercospora zeae-maydis, Fusarium monilforme, Fusarium graminearum, Helminthosporium maydis, Phoma lingam, Phomopsis helianthi, Phytopthera infestans, Pyricularia oryzae, Pythium ultimum, Rhizoctonia solani, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Ustilago maydis, and Verticillium dahliae. Further, this invention encompasses other homologous and heterologous sequences with a high degree of functional similarity.

  • Patent number: 7667100
    Abstract: The present invention relates to nucleic acid and amino acid sequences that confer herbicide resistance in plants, as well as herbicide resistance in plants, plant seeds, plant tissues and plant cells comprising such sequences. In a preferred embodiment, the sequences of the present invention confer a tolerant phenotype in plants in response to a chronic and/or acute inhibitin dose of auxinic herbicides. The present invention also provides homologous sequences with a high degree of functional similarity.

  • Publication number: 20040250310
    Abstract: This invention encompasses isolated genes and amino acids that confer insect control properties on plants, as well as plants comprising such genes. These genes are derived from the following sources: Arabidopsis thaliana, Nicotiana benthamiana, Oryzae sativa (vars indica IR7, japonica) and Papaver rhoeas. In a preferred embodiment, insect control is conferred against Manduca sexta (tobacco hornworm) larvae. This invention further provides both homologous and heterologous sequences with a high degree of functional similarities.
