The bean lectin phytohemagglutinin (PHA) was expressed in transgenic suspension-cultured BY-2 tobacco cells simultaneously with another recombinant vacuolar protein, the sweet potato sporamin. In contrast to previous observations in different transgenic plant systems when expressed in BY-2 tobacco cells, phytohemagglutinin is mostly but not exclusively targeted to the vacuole. Indeed, a small amount of recombinant phytohemagglutinin is secreted into the culture medium of tobacco cells… CONTINUE READING
