Agrobacterium tumefaciens VirB proteins are essential for gene transfer from bacteria to plants. These proteins are postulated to form a transport pore to allow transfer of the T-strand DNA intermediate. To study the function of the VirB proteins in DNA transfer, we developed an expression system in A. tumefaciens. Analysis of one VirB protein, VirB9, by… CONTINUE READING
