Potyvirus vectors for the expression of foreign genes
MetadataShow full item record
The present invention provides an expression vector adapted for expressing heterologous proteins in plants susceptible to a polyprotein-producing plant virus. The vector utilizes the unique ability of viral polyprotein proteases to cleave heterologous proteins from viral polyproteins. Also provided is a method for expressing heterologous proteins in plants using these unique expression vectors.
