WUR develops plant-produced vaccine against cattle nematode

šŸ”¬ Interested in alternative production systems forĀ #biopharmaceuticals? A recent study inĀ #ScientificĀ Reports showcases aĀ #plantbasedĀ vaccine antigen effective against a bovine parasitic nematode (Ostertagia ostertagi), a significant concern for animal health globally.
šŸŒ± The key innovation lies inĀ #mimickingĀ the native protein’s N-glycosylation pattern usingĀ Nicotiana benthamiana plants, achieving a 39% reduction in parasite egg output! This is a promising result comparable to the native antigen. This novel approach offers new possibilities for controlling parasitic nematodes, while transforming vaccine development in veterinary. Check out the full study for more insights (https://lnkd.in/gJSyap5C).
šŸ’” AtĀ Hudson River Biotechnology, we specialize in developing in a few monthsĀ #CRISPR-edited N. benthamiana plants without plant-specific glycosylation, making them ideal for producing your biopharmaceuticals. If you’re interested in exploring collaborative opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact us at HRB for more information.
