Plants, cows and humans use the same amino acids to make up their proteins and yet the proteins are very different. Why??

Could a plant make a human protein if we could splice a human protein gene into the plant's genome? Why?

----Those questions are from a lab we did, i got the whole thing done except that!! I'm stuck on the questions, I have no clue what to write, HELP!!!!!!
