Transgenic Aloe Plants For Production Of Proteins And Related Methods

Abstract

The present inventions provide transgenic aloe plants and recombinant constructs for transforming aloe plants, aspects of which, may be applied to other monocots. The recombinant constructs may include one or more DNA sequences encoding mammalian proteins and at least one promoter capable of directing the expression of recombinant proteins in an aloe plant. The present inventions also provide methods for constructing and reproducing a transgenic aloe plant. The present inventions include methods for transfection of an aloe plant with several genes of interest simultaneously. The aloe plant production methods of the inventions may provide the potential to inexpensively and more safely mass-produce some biologically active compounds including biopharmaceuticals for disease therapy, diagnosis and prevention, and is more accessible to the less affluent countries. The aloe plant production methods may also produce proteins for cosmetics.
