Agrobacterium tumefaciens is a gram-negative bacterium with the unique capacity to induce neoplasmic transformations in dicotyledonous plants. Recently, both the mechanism and the biological significance of this transformation have been elucidated. Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains contain a large extrachromosomal DNA plasmid (the Ti-plasmid). This Ti-plasmid is responsible for the oncogenic properties of Agrobacterium strains. A particular segment of the Ti-plasmid, containing information… CONTINUE READING
