The granted patent (Publication Number: US11834666B2) discloses a genetically engineered land plant that expresses a plant protein of Zea nicaraguensis of SEQ ID NO: 7. The genetically engineered land plant contains a modified gene for the plant protein, with a non-cognate promoter initiating transcription of the nucleic acid sequence encoding the plant protein. The plant is specifically an oilseed plant, with the modified gene integrated into its genomic DNA and stably expressed within the plant.

Furthermore, the patent claims specify that the promoter in the genetically engineered land plant can be either constitutive or seed-specific. The modified gene is designed to ensure the expression of the plant protein, and the plant itself belongs to the category of oilseed crop plants, including camelina, Brassica species, soybean, sunflower, and others. This genetically engineered land plant represents a novel approach in biotechnology, offering potential benefits in agriculture and crop production through the expression of specific plant proteins in oilseed plants for various applications.
