Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato PT23.2 produces the chlorosis-inducing phytotoxin coronatine. Thirty-eight chlorosis-defective mutants of PT23.2 were previously generated by using the transposon Tn5. Five mutants contained Tn5 insertions in the indigenous plasmid pPT23A; the remaining 33 mutants either were missing pPT23A (29 mutants) or contained deletions in this plasmid (4 mutants). These results suggested that pPT23A was involved in coronatine production in strain PT23.2. This plasmid was… CONTINUE READING
