Example sentences for: agrobacterium

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

  • 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.

  • We observed low transformation efficiency of Arabidopsis with Agrobacterium carrying pEL702 under our transformation conditions (<10% of that with pEL700, data not shown).

  • Agrobacterium rhizogenes is capable of producing TFX by addition of the stable plasmid, pT2TFXK, which contains the tfx operon but not tfuA [ 11 12 20 ] . This suggests that TFX production by crown gall biological control strains of Agrobacterium, such as A. rhizogenes K84 and A. vitis F2/5, may be enhanced by TFX production.

  • However, the commercial application of the K84 biological control system is limited where Agrobacterium strains of certain crops are not inhibited by K84.
