Expressing barnacle cement proteins genes such as the BA5 gene in plants may enable individual study and analysis. This technique is effective since barnacle cement is difficult to work with as a whole in the lab setting. The BA5 gene extracted from Balanus amphitrite is transferred to tobacco leaf tissue using Agrobacterium tumefaciens.
