  • Patent number: 10494640
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are described for producing a glucanase in transgenic plants and then incorporating parts of the transgenic plants in animal feed. The feed glucanase enzyme displays activity across a broad pH range, and tolerance to temperatures that are often encountered during the process of preparing animal feeds. Producing the enzyme in the transgenic plant enhances the thermal stability of the enzyme.

  • Patent number: 10415046
    Abstract: The present invention claims methods for the stable integration of exogenous DNA into a specific locus, E32, in the maize genome through the use of zinc finger nucleases. Maize plants and plant parts that were transformed by the methods of the invention are claimed. The invention is useful for creating desirable traits such as herbicide resistance, herbicide tolerance, insect resistance, insect tolerance, disease resistance, disease tolerance, stress tolerance, and stress resistance in maize The E32 locus represents a superior site for inserting foreign genes because native agronomic phenotypes are not disturbed.
