Plant Transient Expression
Cape Biologix Technologies' method of producing recombinant proteins by transient gene expression in plants (PtX™) shares similar basic steps to other expression systems, such as DNA cloning, transformation, and protein purification. The defining characteristic of plant transient expresiion is the infiltration of plants with expression vector-containing agrobacterium. See Figure 1 below for a summary of their plant transient expression (PtX™) technology.
Plant transient expression is a well-established technology that provides compelling benefits and equivalent performance compared to other expression systems including its unique expression characteristics, scalability, quality, flexibility, and sustainability. After 30 years of maturation, leading to it proving its unique advantages and ability to align with industry quality standard, molecular farming can now be added to the list of extablished expression systems.
