Molecular analysis of Agrobacterium T-DNA integration in tomato reveals a role for left border sequence homology in most integration events

Abstract

Studies in several plants have shown that Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA can integrate into plant chromosomal DNA by different mechanisms involving single-stranded (ss) or double-stranded (ds) forms. One mechanism requires sequence homology between plant target and ssT-DNA border sequences and another double-strand-break repair in which preexisting… (More)
