Description

Transgenic Plants: A Production System for Industrial and Pharmaceutical Proteins provides a detailed guide to the principles and practice of using transgenic plants as a system for the production of heterologous proteins. It is unique in that it covers the complete process of heterologous protein production in plants, from the initial transformation of the plant, through to transcription, transgene stability and finally the downstreaming processing events for protein purification. Written by an international team of industrialists and academics, this book describes:
* the fundamental issues associated with expressing heterologous proteins in plants;
* a number of detailed examples of the successful small-and large-scale production of proteins;
* the essentials of patenting; and
* the commercial exploitation.
Transgenic Plants: A Production System for Industrial and Pharmaceutical Proteins will be of interest to plant biotechnologists, molecular biologists and protein biochemists in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
