Example sentences for: agrobacterium

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

  • 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.

  • With the TFX system, the biological control of Agrobacterium pathogens may be extended to many crops far beyond what is possible today with currently available commercial products.

  • Interestingly, models of bacterial evolution suggest HGT as a mechanism of adaptation into either symbiosis or parasitism [ 32 ] . This is specifically thought to be the case for divergent species of rhizobia, such as the symbiont Sinorhizobium meliloti and the pathogen Rhizobium radiobacter (formerly known as Agrobacterium tumefaciens ), where differential selection and gene maintenance is likely to be responsible for different lifestyle strategies [ 33 ] .

  • The ability to displace indigenous tumorigenic Agrobacterium strains would be beneficial in those areas already infested with the pathogen.

  • The best understood mechanism is the transfer of T-strand DNA from the Ti-plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens into wounded plant tissues, a process resulting in the formation of tumors [ 30].
