ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are advising the public that the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has received a petition from Monsanto Company, seeking a determination of nonregulated status for corn designated as transformation event LY038, which has been genetically engineered to express a lysine-insensitive dihydrodipicolinate synthase (cDHDPS) enzyme, which allows for the accumulation of higher levels of lysine in the germ of the seed. Corn-soybean meal based diets formulated for poultry and swine are characteristically deficient in lysine and require the addition of supplemental lysine for optimal animal growth and production. This corn product may provide an alternative to supplementation of feed with lysine. The petition has been submitted in accordance with our regulations E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1
