  • SummaryThe successful biocontrol agent for crown gall disease, Agrobacterium radiobacter strain K84, is unable to protect grapevines from infection. We have identified a strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, J73, which produces an agrocin active both in vitro and in vivo against grapevine pathogens (Webster et al. 1986). We now report on the curing of this strain of its nopaline-type Ti plasmid and the location, by transposon mutagenesis, of the genes involved in the production of the agrocin… CONTINUE READING
