Abstract Laticifers are highly specialized plant cells that produce latex enriched with secondary metabolites. The articulated laticifers of Taraxacum brevicorniculatum synthesize natural rubber, an industrially-valuable composite biopolymer comprising >95% high-molecular-weight (HMW) poly( cis -1,4-isoprene). Here we present a proof-of-concept approach for the cultivation of cell suspension cultures exclusively containing laticifers. We transformed T. brevicorniculatum plants with a plasmid… Expand
