N. benthamiana is a historical plant-based model system for the transient expression of high purity proteins in a non-GM system. As opposed to recombinant production by Gram(-) bacteria which may contain endotoxins, synthesis of proteins in plants allows to obtain safe plant-based biotechnological ingredients with proper modifications and high activity.
The aging process on the skin resembles a chronic injury. The combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors in the aging process leads to an oxidative imbalance, damage to proteins structure and inflammatory processes, just like a wound.
Epitensive™ contains plant-Epidermal Growth Factor (plant-EGF), a protein able to activate the ERK and AKT pathways. These paths are involved in protein synthesis and cellular regeneration to provide mature skin with the right extracellular matrix content and regenerative capacity lost with age.
