Plants as bioreactors are able to produce substances including proteins. In order to produce a protein, the corresponding gen is introduced into plant cells by two systems: stable genetic transformation and the use of viral vectors. Tobacco, alfalfa and hevea have been used for this purpose. Peptides such as leu-enkephalin, blood proteins such as albumin, hormones and cytokines such as interferons, immunogens such as Hepatitis B surface antigen, antibodies such as secretary IgA and enzymes such as glucanase, xylanase, phytase and amylase have been produced by this method.
