Most pathogenic strains of Agrobacterium are able to induce crown gall or hairy root on both the apical surface (facing the root tip) and the basal surface (facing the shoot) of carrot (Daucus carota L.) root discs. Tumorigenic strains carrying mutations in the shoot inhibition region of the T-DNA (TL-DNA genes 1 and 2) are markedly attenuated on the basal surface but remain virulent on the apical surface. Coinoculation of two attenuated tumorigenic strains, with mutations in gene 1 and gene 2… CONTINUE READING
