Abstract

Monoclonal antibodies are antibodies which can be isolated from one cell type. Until recently they were isolated only from animal cell cultures, but it has been discovered that plants as well can be used as a source of recombinant antibodies, but it is necessary to change glycosylation patterns in order to be mammalian-like. Comparing plant- and animal-derived antibodies scientists have concluded that antibodies produced in plants show right structure, and have even better antigen-binding specificity. Furthermore, plants have been recognized as a more economical source of recombinant antibodies, considering speed and cost of production.
