The Agrobacterium rhizogenes T-DNA oncogene rolD under the control of its own 5' regulatory region was transferred to day-neutral tobacco plants. The main trait induced by rolD in transgenic plants is a striking precocity in flower setting and a strong enhancement of the flowering potential. In rolD plants, early flowering is followed by the very rapid growth of numerous lateral inflorescences. The analysis of several morphological and histological parameters suggests that some characteristic… CONTINUE READING
