An inexpensive source of industrially useful enzymes is critical for their commercial production. We have produced an industrially valuable recombinant superoxide dismutase (SOD) in tobacco chloroplasts. A gene from Withania somnifera, encoding a highly stable Cu/Zn SOD, was cloned into a chloroplast transformation vector. It expressed the SOD in tobacco(More)
Plastid transformation vectors are used for high-level expression of industrially important recombinant proteins in plants. In the present study, new vectors for plastid transformation were developed. One of these vectors targets transgenes at a new site in the chloroplast genome. Intergenic regions of trnfM-trnG, ndhB-trnL and rrn16-trnV were selected as(More)
