Chlorogen Company Profile

The idea that culminated in the founding of Chlorogen in 2002 began in the mid 1980s. That's when molecular biologist Professor Henry Daniell became interested in the developing field of plant biotechnology. While he recognized the tremendous potential for plants to produce beneficial novel proteins for foods, medicines and industrial uses, he questioned whether there was a risk that foreign genes inserted into the plant nucleus could "escape" through pollen to conventional crops or other plants in the environment.
It was believed that chloroplasts, the components of cells that carry out photosynthesis, were inherited maternally. If so, this would mean that novel genes introduced into the chloroplast genome of cells would not be transmitted via pollen. He began studying chloroplasts and researched ways to introduce new genes into chloroplast DNA.
He discovered a section of DNA that, when attached to a gene from another source, caused that gene to express novel proteins in the chloroplasts. This genetic sequence is called a “regulatory signal” because it regulates the activity of the newly introduced genes. It instructs the attached genes to produce proteins in the chloroplast and only in the chloroplast.
