We previously identified changes in gene expression in Ageratum conyzoides plant cells inoculated with Agrobacterium tumefaciens by using cDNA-AFLP. Here, we show that a subset of defense-related genes is differentially regulated by an Agrobacterium attachment-deficient mutant. The expression pattern triggered by this mutant is similar to that induced by inoculation with non-pathogenic bacteria. We also observed that the expression level of the defense genes was inversely correlated with the… CONTINUE READING
