1995). The Mre11 protein functions in complex with Rad50 and Xrs2, and it has an exonuclease activity that plays a role in both HR and NHR (Usui et al. 1998). In Agrobacterium-infected yeast cells, Mre11 was necessary for T-DNA integration via the NHR pathway (van Attikum et al. 2001). Taken together, these observations strongly suggest that, at least in yeast, T-DNA integration is mainly dependent on the host, rather than bacterial factors. In higher plants, integration of foreign DNA occurs mainly by NHR, although HR can also take place, albeit at extremely low rates (Gheysen et al.

Two studies in cultured plant cells have shown that many genes involved in plant defense are induced by inoculation with Agrobacterium (Ditt et al. 2005, 2006). Similarly, the expression of several defense response genes, such as those encoding β-1,3-glucanase and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, is activated during Arabidopsis infection by Agrobacterium (Veena et al. 2003). Importantly, this work suggests that plant response to Agrobacterium takes place in two distinct stages. First, during the initial 12 hours after inoculation, a “general” response is observed with activation of many defense-related genes, which is very similar to the general plant response to biotic stress.

2001). This chapter focuses on numerous host plant factors that play important roles in the transformation process, from the initial interactions between Agrobacterium and plant cells and the activation of Agrobacterium’s virulence, to the integration of T-DNA into the host genome. Plant Signals Affecting Agrobacterium’s Virulence Machinery The rhizosphere is a complex and dynamic environment, where plant-associated bacteria such as Agrobacterium need subtle regulation systems to efficiently induce their virulence machinery (Brencic and Winans 2005).
