Production of proinsulin in marker-free transgenic tobacco plants using CRE/loxP system

Production of proinsulin in marker-free transgenic tobacco plants using CRE/loxP system The demand for INSULIN is increasing rapidly along with the increased number of diabetic patients. Using the CRE/loxP system, we developed a selective marker-free system without crossing to produce PROINSULIN in transgenic plant. In frame of this approach, the induced promoter pRD29A was isolated from Arabidopsis. The CRE recombinase gene was placed under the control of pRD29A between two loxP recombination sites together with the selective NPTII gene. Furthermore, the binary vector with CRE recombinase and PROINSULIN was constructed and introduced into tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. Gene excision was used to remove the sequence between the two loxP sites at the presence of 200 mM NaCl. PCR analysis showed that self-excision occurred in several T0 transgenic plants.

Abstract

The demand for INSULIN is increasing rapidly along with the increased number of diabetic patients. Using the CRE/loxP system, we developed a selective marker-free system without crossing to produce PROINSULIN in transgenic plant. In frame of this approach, the induced promoter pRD29A was isolated from Arabidopsis. The CRE recombinase gene was placed under the control of pRD29A between two loxP recombination sites together with the selective NPTII gene. Furthermore, the binary vector with CRE recombinase and PROINSULIN was constructed and introduced into tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. Gene excision was used to remove the sequence between the two loxP sites at the presence of 200 mM NaCl. PCR analysis showed that self-excision occurred in several T0 transgenic plants. Transgenic plants without any marker gene successfully expressed PROINSULIN. This auto-excision strategy provides efficient means of removing the selectable marker gene from transgenic plants. It is an efficient method for producing bio-safe recombinant protein and other valuable substances in plants.
