Animal Bioreactors

Transgenic animal bioreactors have the potential to produce complex, biologically active recombinant proteins, and serve as organ donors for transplantations in humans, in an efficient and economic manner (206,207). Transgenic rabbits expressing human genes have been used as a model for cardiovascular disease, AIDS, and cancer research (208). The recombinant proteins can be produced from the milk of transgenic rabbits not only at lower cost but also on a relatively large scale. Transgenic rabbits, which are a relatively larger mammalian transgenic model compared to transgenic mice, can be used as human disease models and live bioreactors for producing human therapeutic proteins. Transgenic zebra fish have been explored as a useful bioreactor for the expression of living color fluorescent
