State-of-the-art biochemistry methods in combination with an automated phenotyping method demonstrate the high potential of transgenic tobacco plants in producing properly-folded therapeutic proteins for the treatment of protein-misfolding diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's disease). This molecular farming approach led to highest protein production of hydroponically- grown tobacco compared to other growth substrates generally used in plant cultivation.

Keywords: Alzheimer's disease; PMPs; Protein folding; methodologial strategy; molecular farming; value-added biochemicals

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
