The assembly of hepatitis B virus core particles in transgenic tobacco, carrot and rice plants

Zaman Alli
The spread amongst humans of viral diseases such as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), hepatitis and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is alarming. A plant-based high fidelity production system is being developed with emphasis on producing antigens capable of being orally delivered to humans in plant packets. To test whether transgenic tobacco, carrot and rice plants can correctly process and assemble the hepatitis-B virus (HBV) core particle/antigen (HBcAg), they were transformed with a C-terminal truncated version...
