  • Patent number: 5589615
    Abstract: A process for the production of plants with increased content of appropriate amino acids having high nutritional properties through the modification of plant genes encoding plant storage proteins, particularly the 2S albumins. Seed-forming plants susceptible to Agrobacterium transformation, the genome of which plants includes a recombinant DNA encoding a precursor of a modified 2S albumin, under the control of a promoter, are described, including the particular recombinant DNA.
