Members of the Camelidae (camels, dromedaries, llamas, alpacas, guanacos and vicunas) are known to produce Igs (immunoglobulins) devoid of light chains and CH1s (constant heavy-chain domains). The antigen-specific binding fragments of these heavy-chain antibodies therefore comprise one single domain (the so-called 'VHH') and are of great importance in(More)
A method for transformation of B.napus is presented in this study. The protocol is based on infection of cotyledonary petioles of 5-day-old and hypocotyl segments of 14-day-old seedlings with an Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA 4404 carrying a disarmed binary vector pBI121. The T-DNA region of this binary vector contains the neomycin phosphotransferase(More)
As because the plant plastid genome is highly polyploid, the transformation of chloroplasts permits the introduction of thousands of copies of foreign genes per plant cell and generates extraordinarily high levels of recombinant protein. Human tissue-type plasminogen activator is one of the most important pharmaceutical proteins involved in the breakdown of(More)
A promising alternative to conventional antibodies is the single-domain antibody fragment of the Camelidae (V(HH)), which (because of features such as small length, high expression, solubility, and stability) is preferred to other antibody derivatives. In this report, a recombinant single-domain antibody (V(HH)) against MUC1 mucin in the tobacco plant,(More)
The new salt tolerant cereal, Tritipyrum (2n=6x=42, AABBEbEb) offers potential to introduce desirable characters for wheat improvements. This study was aimed to generate a segregating population from Iranian local wheat cultivars (2n=6x=42, AABBDD) and Tritipyrum crosses, study of the meiotic behaviour in F2 hybrids and identification of Eb chromosomes in(More)
Quantitative and qualitative changes in total leaf soluble proteins were determined in a spring cv. Zagross and in a winter cv. Azar 2 cultivar of allohexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) exposed to 4°C for two weeks. The data obtained were used to test whether these different genotypes of wheat responded differentially to cold treatment. Seedlings were(More)
Electrophoretic pattern and quantitative changes in soluble proteins were determined in the leaves of spring and winter cultivars of barley (Hordeum vulgare L., cv. Makouei and cv. Reyhan, respectively) exposed to 4 degrees C for 14 d. Seedlings were grown in a controlled growth chamber for 2 weeks at a constant air temperature of 20 degrees C and then(More)
BACKGROUND Plants are among promising and suitable platform systems for production of recombinant biopharmaceutical proteins due to several features such as safety, no need for fermentation, inexpensive investment, and fast and easy scale-up. Human insulin is one of the most widely used medicines in the world. Up to now different expression systems(More)
Different expression systems such as bacteria and mammalian cells have been used to produce pharmaceutical proteins. In recent years, the use of plants as bioreactors offers efficient and economical systems in recombinant protein production. Furthermore, because of the large number of plastid copies in plants, chloroplast engineering functions as an(More)
During recent years, hazel cell suspension culture has been significantly considered as a new important source of paclitaxel. Artificial polyploidy alters different characters in plants which results in amplifying the secondary metabolites in medicinal plants. In this paper, the effects of tetraploidy induction on paclitaxel content and gene expression in(More)
