|20120255066||TRANSGENIC EXPRESSION OF ACYL-CO-A BINDING PROTEINS IN PLANTS - Disclosed are methods for modification of fatty acid composition and/or seed oil content in plants. In particular are methods to over-express acyl-CoA binding proteins (ACBPs) within the cells of developing seeds are provided. Over-expressing ACBPs under the control of a seed preferred promoter increases polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) levels as compared to wild-type controls.||10-04-2012|
|20090282583||METHODS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF INSULIN IN PLANTS - Commercial production of human insulin can be effected via transgenic expression in plant seeds. Thus, levels of insulin accumulation exceeding 0.1% of total cellular protein can be achieved recombinantly, through expression of the insulin with a single-chain antibody as a fusion partner. Production in seeds offers flexibility in storage and shipment of insulin as a raw material, and insulin retains its activity upon extraction from stored seed. Further, the amount of biomass subjected to extraction is limited, due to the relatively low water content of plant seeds.||11-12-2009|
