ABSTRACT

Although genetically modified (GM) glyphosate-resistant soybeans with cp4-epsps gene have been widely planted all over the world, their proteomic characteristics are not very clear. In this study, the soybean seeds of a GM soybean line H06-698 (H) with cp4-epsps gene and its non-transgenic counterpart Mengdou12 (M), which were collected from two experiment fields in two years and used as 4 sample groups, were analyzed with label-free proteomics technique. A total of 1706 proteins were identified quantitatively by label-free quantification, and a total of 293 proteins were detected as common differential abundance proteins (DAPs, FC is not less than 1.5) both in two groups or more. Functional enrichment analysis of common DAPs identified from four groups, shows that most up-regulated proteins were clustered into stress response, carbon and energy metabolism, and genetic information processing. Further documentary analysis shows that 15 proteins play important roles in shikimate pathways, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and stress response. These results indicated that the change of protein abundance in different samples were affected by various factors, but except shikimate and branched pathways related proteins, only ROS and stress-related proteins were found to be stably regulated by cp4-epsps gene, and no unexpected and safety-related proteins such as antinutritional factors, allergenic proteins, and toxic proteins were found as DAPs. The influence of foreign genes in genetically modified plants is worthy of attention and this work provides new clues for exploring the regulated proteins and pathways in GM plants.
