The stable expression of antibodies in plants is one recent strategy for the unconventional control of plant viruses that is undergoing development. The advantages of this approach are its wide applicability and intrinsic safety; however, to be successful, the 'genetic immunization' of plants requires careful antibody design, efficient expression and targeting to appropriate cell compartments. © 1995.
