A method for commercial production of avidin entails heterologous expression of the protein in plants, in native conformation, at an expression level such that avidin represents at least 0.1% of total extracted protein. A genetic map of the integration locus allows for the identification of the avidin-expressing plant. Genetic loci on a plant chromosome are revealed that support high levels of avidin expression and that can be used as a site of integration for high level expression of other genes of interest.
