Tartrate utilization genes promote growth of Agrobacterium spp. on grapevine

Tartrate utilization genes promote growth of Agrobacterium spp. on grapevine

Molecular Plant Microbe Interactions 11(8): 836-838

Crown gall on grapevine is mainly caused by Agrobacterium vitis, which metabolizes tartrate. Competition experiments between a tartrate-utilizing strain and its nonutilizing derivative showed that tartrate utilization confers a selective advantage on grapevine.
