Leaf explants of hairy root tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) regenerants characteristically differentiate roots from the wound margins on hormonefree medium. The same response can be elicited on normal tobacco by culturing the explants in the presence of auxin. We show here that the spontaneous rooting of transformed plants is neither due to the activity of right T-DNA-borne auxin genes nor to a substantially altered balance of endogenous hormones. Rather, an increased sensitivity to auxin is… CONTINUE READING
