Tartrate utilization genes promote growth of Agrobacterium spp. on grapevine

Tartrate utilization genes promote growth of Agrobacterium spp. on grapevine

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.
