Plant Growth and Morphogenesis in vitroIs Promoted by Associative Methylotrophic Bacteria
- 73 Downloads
The effects of aerobic methylotrophic bacteria Methylovorus mayson growth and morphogenesis were studied in in vitropropagated tobacco, potato, and flax. Colonization of plant explants with the methylo-trophic bacteria led to the stable association of bacteria and plants and enhanced the growth and the capacity of the latter for regeneration and root formation. When colonized by the methylotrophic bacteria, the rootless transgenic tobacco plants carrying the agrobacterial cytokinin gene iptrestored their ability to form roots. These data indicate the possibility to employ methylotrophic bacteria as a tool in experimental biology and plant biotechnology.
