Transgenic plants remove more selenium from polluted soil than wild plants, new tests show

...eveloped by plant geneticists -- such as modifying chloroplast DNA rather than nuclear DNA -- will eventually reduce the need for such constant monitoring. Since chloroplast DNA is maternally inherited, there is little risk of pollen transfer, said Terry. Terry said it's w...

MSU researchers receive $4 million grant to uncover gene functions

... in advances in human health and agriculture. The chloroplast gives green plants their color and carries out photosynthesis and produces oxygen. It can be thought of as the world's life-support system. It is an attractive target for biotechnology because it produces many different molecules important to agricul...

Effective, safe anthrax vaccine can be grown in tobacco plants

... his colleagues injected the vaccine gene into the chloroplast genome of tobacco cells, partly because those plan...logy company called Chlorogen to apply his work in chloroplast genetic engineering. In 2004, he won UCF's Pegasus Professor Award, the top honor given to a faculty...

Defense peptide found in primates may block some human HIV transmissions

...he retrocyclin gene would be incorporated into the chloroplast genome of tobacco cells before the plants grow. Daniell has developed a similar approach to growing anthrax vaccine in tobacco plants. An inexpensive way to produce the drug with only a small amount of tobacco would help to make it accessible in ar...

...uantities of glycosylate recombinant proteins. The chloroplast is a cell organ with great capacity for storing pr... Once the presence of this type of protein in the chloroplast was ascertained, the scientists asked themselves if it were the cell organ itself that was glycosyla...

Deep in the ocean, a clam that acts like a plant

... get their energy and carbon via photosynthesis by chloroplast symbionts, this clam gets its energy via chemosynthesis," said Jonathan Eisen, a professor at the UC Davis Genome Center and an author on the paper. The actual work of photosynthesis in green plants is done by chloroplasts, descended from primitiv...
