Plants containing the left T-DNA (TL) of Agrobacterium rhizogenes show a variety of developmental abnormalities that include severely wrinkled leaves, loss of apical dominance, reduced geotropism of roots, reduced internode distances, and floral hyperstyly. The TL-DNA also affects the morphology of tumor tissue at the site of inoculation on Kalanchoe diagremontiana leaves. Single mutations at four loci of the TL-DNA (rolA, rolB, rolC, and rolD) are known to affect tumor morphology on K… CONTINUE READING
