Using metabolic engineering, we have modified the carotenoid biosynthesis pathway in tobacco (nicotiana tabacum) to produce astaxanthin, a red pigment of considerable economic value. In several regions in europe during the nineteenth century, a disease significantly curtailed tobacco production because of a distortion of the leaves and a reduction in yield and quality the disease, known as tobacco mosaic, was named for the abnormal mixture of green, pale green, and yellow colors (or mosaic) on the leaves (figure 1. We generated transgenic tobacco ( nicotiana tabacum cv xanthi) plants that contained only one to three enlarged chloroplasts per leaf mesophyll cell by introducing ntftsz1-2 , a cdna for plastid division.

Production of foreign proteins using plastid transformation biosynthesis of astaxanthin in tobacco leaves by transplastomic engineering in lettuce and tobacco.
Genetically engineered chloroplasts have an extraordinary capacity to accumulate recombinant proteins we have investigated in tobacco ( nicotiana tabacum ) the possible consequences of such additional products on several parameters of plant development and composition. 1 short communication stable production of peptide antigens in transgenic tobacco chloroplasts by fusion to the p53 tetramerisation domain. However, the β-carotene hydroxylase of the alga haematococcus pluvialis is not found in the chloroplasts and the conversion of β-carotene into astaxanthin takes place in cytoplasmic lipid vesicles, but not in the chloroplasts. Schematic representation of a potential carotenoid production pathway, resulting from brevundimonas crtz and crtw insertions into the tobacco plastid genome carotenoids found in transplastomic tobacco plants are highlighted in bold typeface, and eight intermediates of ketolated and/or hydroxylated carotenoids in the synthesis of astaxanthin are underlined.
This is the first report of bfgf expression via chloroplast transformation in model plant, providing an additional option for the production of chloroplast-produced therapeutic proteins basic fibroblast growth factor (bfgf) is a multifunctional factor in acceleration of cell proliferation, differentiation and transference, and therefore widely. Simple functional analysis of key genes involved in astaxanthin biosynthesis using arabidopsis cultured cells tobacco chloroplasts (misawa et al 1993, 1994. Tobacco lines had previously been generated by leaf disc transformation with the bkt gene from c reinhardtii together with the chloroplast transit peptide sequence of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase small subunit (rbcs) under the control of the 35s promoter, in order to obtain plants producing the ketocarotenoid astaxanthin (huang et al. They can use so-called riboswitches to switch the genes in the chloroplasts of tobacco plants on and off genes under control: scientists develop gene switch for chloroplasts in plant cells.
