Monoclonal antibody manufacturing in transgenic plants — myths and realities Academic Article uri icon


  • The number and types of antibodies expressed in plants has increased steadily since the first reports of this accomplishment in the 1980s, illustrating the versatility of plants as a production system for antibodies. Many recent reviews have detailed the antibody forms that have been derived from plant expression systems. This contribution focuses on the remaining challenges to develop plant-derived therapeutic antibodies into products, and some of the progress that is being made in addressing these challenges.
