Project: Increase of heterologous gene expression in plants by cytoplasmic RNA replication and cap-independent translation.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
The aim of the project is to develop a method for the accumulation of very high levens of a protein of interest in plant cells. The strategy is based on the cytoplasmic amplification of an RNA by a viral RNA replicase and the cap-independent translation of the amplified transcript.
