Plant molecular farming (PMF), defined as the practice of using plants to produce human therapeutic proteins, has received worldwide interest. PMF has grown and advanced considerably over the past two decades. A number of therapeutic proteins have been produced in plants, some of which have been through pre-clinical or clinical trials and are close to(More)
Trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica HM-1 were cultivated axenically in TYI-S medium. The amoebae were then transferred into this medium lacking serum (TYI) and inoculated into in vivo colon loops of adult Sprague-Dawley rats. The trophozoites were rapidly absorbed by the mucus, and few were found free in the luminal fluid by 1 h. By 4 h, the amoebae began(More)
Lumbrokinases, a group of fibrinolytic enzymes extracted from earthworm, have been widely used to prevent and treat various cardiovascular diseases. They specifically target fibrin to effectively degrade thrombi without major side effects. Plant expression systems are becoming potential alternative expression platforms for producing pharmaceutical proteins.(More)
