Example sentences for: agrobacterium

How can you use “agrobacterium” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In addition to the purple bacteria, such versions are seen in the cyanobacteria, α-proteobacteria such as rhizobia, Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Brucella melitensis, and Deinococcus radiodurans (Figure 3).

  • To transform A. thaliana with the Agrobacterium carrying pEL702, independent Agrobacterium colonies were first grown for 12 h in several different culture tubes with 2 ml culture medium.

  • To test the validity of word counting as a solution to the problem, we identified a set of 50 gene sequences from plants ( M. truncatula and G. max ), oomycetes ( Phytophthora ), zygomycetes ( Glomus versiforme ), and bacteria ( Sinorhizobium meliloti and Agrobacterium tumefaciens ), for which the function and origin have been characterized experimentally.

  • TFX effectively inhibits growth of members of the α-proteobacteria including strains of Brucella, Ochrobactrum, Rhodobacter, Rhodospeudomonas, Rhizobium, and the etiological agent of crown gall disease, Agrobacterium [ 12 ] . TFX is highly specific for this group, as demonstrated by a lack of observable effect on the majority of the bacterial population in the bean rhizosphere [ 13 ] . This suggests that TFX could be used to control crown gall diseases of various plants with limited effects on non-target bacteria outside of that very specific group of TFX-sensitive α-proteobacteria.

  • Furthermore, TFX is inhibitory towards all tested species of Agrobacterium [ 12 ] . These results suggest that TFX production would enhance crown gall biological control for other biological control strains, such as A. rhizogenes K84, and on other host plants, especially where a mixed inoculum of different tumorigenic Agrobacterium species occurs.
