Discrete regions of the sensor protein virA determine the strain-specific ability of Agrobacterium to agroinfect maize.


The ability of Agrobacterium strains to infect transformation-recalcitrant maize plants has been shown to be determined mainly by the virA locus, implicating vir gene induction as the major factor influencing maize infection. In this report, we further explore the roles of vir induction-associated bacterial factors in maize infection using the technique of… (More)
