Title: Production Of Cellulase In Plastids Of Transgenic Plants

Abstract

A genetic construct encoding a fusion protein including endogluconase E1 and a transit peptide is used to transform plants. The plants produce cellulase by expressing the genetic construct. The cellulase is targeted to plastids and can be collected and purified.
