Thiophene concentrations were measured in crown gall tissues produced by Agrobacterium tumefaciens infections (strains A208, A277) of T. patula plants and compared with those of normal and transformed callus tissues. The results showed that it is not possible to predict the amounts of secondary metabolites produce as a result of transfers of genetic material from infected plants to crown galls and then to transformed callus tissues. There appears to be an accumulation of intermediates in some of the biosynthetic routes.
