Purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.) as a novel green-bioreactor for expression of human serum albumin (HSA) gene
Biotech researchers at Imam Khomeini International University and
partners conducted a study to investigate the production of recombinant
human serum albumin (HSA) protein using a a plant as a bioreactor. The
results are reported in/Transgenic Research/.
Human serum albumin (HSA) is used for treatments of several acute
illnesses, including hypovolemia, burns, and hemorrhage. The researchers
used/in-planta/and tissue culture-based/Agrobacterium/-mediated
transformation (TCBAT) procedures to insert HSA geneinto purslane
(/Portulaca oleracea/L.)genome. The purslane seeds and leaves were
infected with/A. tumefaciens/containing the HSA gene and then
regenerated into transgenic plants.
