Agrobacterium fumefaciens (Agrobacterium) is a soil phytopathogen that genetically transforms host cells, causing crown gall tumors, an agronomically important disease that affects most dicotyledonous plants. In nature, these tumors are formed at the soil-air junction, the so-called crown of the plant. The Agrobacterium-plant cell interaction is the only known natural example of DNA transport between kingdoms. In this process, DNA is transported from wild-type Agrobacterium into the plant cell… CONTINUE READING
