Abstract

Suppression of virulence in caused by introduction of the IncW R plasmid pSa into cells containing a Ti plasmid is accompanied by loss of site adherence in the pinto bean infection assay and by loss of site adherence on the part of LPS isolated from these strains. When cured of the pSa plasmid, infectivity and site adherence are restored. This indicates that LPS produced by pSa-containing agrobacteria is sufficiently modified that it will not support site adherence, the initial step of the infection process.
