Now, ARS molecular biologist Lev Nemchinov and plant pathologist Rosemarie Hammond have endowed a potato virus with a gene that--when introduced into a host plant--prompts the plant to produce a therapeutic protein called "CD14." First isolated by Dante Zarlenga of the ARS Bovine Functional Genomics Laboratory, this beneficial protein can be extracted from the plant and used to treat mastitis.
