Heterologous expression of Infectious bursal disease virus VP2 gene in Chlorella pyrenoidosa as a model system for molecular farming

Infectious bursal disease is a highly contagious and immunosuppressive disease of chickens. Available vaccines induce some sort of stress during vaccination program in chickens. In the present study, an attempt was made to overexpress IBDV VP2 in edible algae. These algae expressing IBDV VP2 could be used to vaccinate animals in stress free environment… CONTINUE READING
