These patents were all originally assigned to Hoeschst Schering AgrEvo GmbH and are now part of the Bayer Crop Science portfolio.

Actual granted claims.

EP 513054 B1
Claim 1
Plant cells comprising a gene coding for a phosphinothricin resistance and a gene coding for a virus resistance.
Claim 5
A process for producing plants with improved properties, which comprises plants being regenerated from plant cells as claimed in claim 1, and these plants being treated with phosphinothricin.
EP 899 340 A2
Claim 1
Plants, plant cells and parts of plants or seed of those plants comprising a gene coding for virus resistance in combination with a herbicide resistance gene.
EP 714237 B1
Claim 1
A method of increasing the yield of crop plants which are resistant to glutamine synthetase inhibitors, which comprises treating the plants with glutamine synthetase inhibitors at application rates which are not harmful to the plants.
US 5633434
Claim 1
An isolated DNA molecule consisting of a nucleotide sequence coding region for a phosphinothricin acetyl transferase protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and a nucleotide sequence coding region for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance.
Claim 10
A transformed plant cell containing and expressing an isolated DNA molecule consisting of a nucleotide sequence coding region for a phosphinothricin acetyl transferase protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and, an isolated DNA molecule consisting of a nucleotide sequence coding region for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance.
Claim 11
A method for improving growth of a plant comprising: transforming plant cells so that the cells contain an isolated DNA molecule consisting of a nucleotide sequence coding region for a phosphinothricin acetyl transferase protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and, an isolated DNA molecule consisting of a nucleotide sequence coding region for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance; selecting transformed cells; regenerating plants from the cells; and treating the regenerated plants with a phosphinothricin herbicide.
US 5792926
Claim 1
A transformed plant cell containing and expressing an isolated DNA sequence comprising a first DNA sequence coding for a protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and, a second DNA sequence coding for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance.
Claim 2
A method for improving growth of a plant comprising: transforming a plant cell so that the cell contains an isolated DNA sequence comprising a first DNA sequence coding for a protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and, a second DNA sequence coding for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance; selecting transferred cells; regenerating the plant from the cell; and treating the regenerated plant with phosphinothricin.
Claim 3
An isolated DNA sequence comprising a first DNA sequence coding for a protein which confers phosphinothricin resistance and, second DNA sequence coding for a virus coat protein which confers virus resistance.
US 5908810
Claim 1
A method of improving the yield of crop plants which are transformed so as to be resistant to glutamine synthetase inhibitors, which comprises treating the plants with a glutamine synthetase inhibitor.
US 5739082
Claim 1
A method of improving the growth of crop plants which are transformed so as to be resistant to glutamine synthetase inhibitors, which comprises treating the plants with a growth stimulating amount of a glutamine synthetase inhibitor.
