Objective:

The objectives of this research project were to:

  1. identify and characterize Arabidopsis genes that are involved in Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA integration;
  2. and initiate a search for Arabidopsis mutants that are hyper-susceptible to Agrobacterium transformation (hat mutants).

The expectation was that the characterization and manipulation of these “integration” genes would enhance Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of recalcitrant crop species.

Summary/Accomplishments (Outputs/Outcomes):

The following conclusions were drawn from the study:

  • Some chromatin mutants are rat mutants (although many are not).
  • Over expression of some histone genes other than HTA1 can enhance Agrobacterium-mediated transformation.
  • Various Arabidopsis histone H2A genes have differing patterns of expression.
  • The investigators have been able to identify Arabidopsis hat mutants from a T-DNA activation-tag mutant collection.
