Integration of Agrobacterium tumefaciens transfer DNA (T-DNA) involves rearrangements of target plant DNA sequences.


The transfer DNA (T-DNA) mobilized into plant cells by Agrobacterium tumefaciens seems to integrate rather randomly into the plant genome. We analyzed a target site in the genome of Nicotiana tabacum before and after integration of a T-DNA. Clones presenting right and left T-DNA/plant DNA junctions were used as probes to identify and isolate a unique 1.8… (More)
