Crown gall tumor disease in dicot plants is caused by Agrobacterium tumefaciens harboring a giant tumor-inducing (Ti) plasmid. Here, for the first time among agrobacterial plasmids, the nucleotide sequence of a typical nopaline-type Ti plasmid (pTi-SAKURA) was determined completely. In total, 195 open reading frames (ORFs) were estimated in the 206479 bp long sequence. 20 genes for conjugation, three for replication, 22 for pathogenesis and 37 for genetic colonization of host plants were found… CONTINUE READING
