Influence of human lactoferrin expression on iron homeostasis, flavonoids, and antioxidants in transgenic tobacco.

This study was aimed at to check the influence of human lactoferrin (hLF) expression on iron homeostasis, flavonoids, and antioxidants in transgenic tobacco. Transgenic tobacco expressing hLF cDNA under the control of a CaMV 35S promoter was produced. The iron content as well as chlorophyll content of transgenic tobacco was lower compared to mock and… CONTINUE READING
