Disease relevance of agropine


High impact information on agropine

  • Searches of protein data banks using sequence and structure-based profiles reveal other enzymes, including aminopeptidase P (EC, prolidase (EC, and agropine synthase, that likely share the same "pita-bread" fold common to creatinase and methionine aminopeptidase [2].
  • Nucleotide sequence analysis of TL-DNA of Agrobacterium rhizogenes agropine type plasmid. Identification of open reading frames [1].
  • Tumor cells containing a T region in which ags was mutated lacked this activity and did not contain agropine [3].
  • For both rice and celery, we observed a greater enhancement of transformation using A. tumefaciens strains containing additional copies of an octopine-type virG gene than with strains harboring additional copies of an agropine-type virG gene [4].
  • Southern analysis showed that the genes for mannopine catabolism in the spontaneous mutants differed from the corresponding Ti plasmid-encoded genes of octopine-type or agropine-type Agrobacterium strains [5].
