Abstract
DNA sequence analysis of the 4.4 kilobases (kb) Eco RI fragment 14 from T-DNA of Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 revealed three open reading frames. One of them (945 bp) was supposed to encode the transcript e, the function of which has not been identified to date. Furthermore, a so far undescribed open reading frame (1035 bp) was identified, located in the centre of the Eco RI fragment 14 and termed gene f. The third open reading frame encoded the carboxy-terminal part of the agrocinopine synthase (Acs). The gene e-encoded protein showed significant homologies to the gene products of the Agrobacterium rhizogenes rolB gene and the Agrobacterium tumefaciens gene 5. Both gene products are supposed to regulate the plant's reaction on auxin. Depending on the plant species tested, Agrobacterium strains carrying mutations in gene e induced only small or almost no detectable crown gall tumours. According to these mutational studies and the protein homologies observed, the gene e product is suggested to be involved in tumour formation. Infection of several plant species with Agrobacterium carrying a mutated gene f, as well as expression of the gene f in transgenic tobacco plants did not lead to visible morphological changes. Therefore, in contrast to gene e, the gene f seems not to be essential for tumour formation. In order to study whether gene f is an active gene, its expression in agrobacteria and plants was monitored by translational lacZ fusion. In planta, the putative gene f-promoter mediates a tissue specific expression pattern. Although gene f was expressed in free-living agrobacteria as well as in transgenic plants, the function of the f locus remained unclear. DNA homology studies with the f gene region revealed a mosaic-like DNA structure, indicating that this locus might be the result of genetic exchanges between different Agrobacterium strains during evolution.
