Description

Transgenic plants present enormous potential to become one of the most cost-effective and safe systems for large-scale production of proteins for industrial, pharmaceutical, veterinary, and agricultural uses. Over the past decade, much progress has been made with respect to the development of vaccines, antibodies, and other therapeutic proteins. Biopharmaceuticals in Plants: Toward the Next Century of Medicine provides a comprehensive survey of all major aspects of the development and production of plant-made biopharmaceuticals.


Key Features:-

  • Describes the theory and practice of modern plant transformation techniques with respect to nuclear
  • Outlines the steps involved in the generation of transgenic plants
  • Discusses the engineering of plant virus expression vectors for transient expression of vaccine prot
  • Addresses the significant role of glycosylation in the production of plant-made mammalian proteins
  • Investigates the basis of mucosal immunity using plant-based oral vaccines
  • Examines the scale-up of plant-derived vaccine and therapeutic proteins in entire crops or in large
