Monsanto asked for renewal of an existing authorization of GE (genetically engineered) oilseed rape GT73 for import into the European Union. The oilseed rape is genetically modified with two genes encoding proteins conferring glyphosate tolerance. One of the proteins is CP4 EPSPS that was also incorporated in Monsanto’s RR soybeans. The second protein is glyphosate oxidoreductase (GOX) which acts by breaking down glyphosate into glyoxylic acid and the metabolite AMPA.
