Narcin Palavan-Unsal, Valentin Kefeli and Winfried Blum

Abstract

Soil bacteria Agrobacterium tumefaciens and Agrobacterium rhizogenes are able to modify plant cell genome and activate the level of plant growth hormones Thus, the gene mutated plant cell cultures could form new types of plants with the higher amount of phyto-hormones. This modification is a result of interaction of soil bacteria with higher plant cells.
