Abstract

Summary: The sequence, encoding a basic elicitin (cryptogein B) from , was co-transformed into The copy number of the sequence varied in co-transformants. Nevertheless, in all cases the alien elicitin gene was transcribed, translated and the protein secreted from such transformants. Moreover, the secreted cryptogein B from co-transformants increased their ability to cause a hypersensitive-response-like necrosis of tobacco leaves. It was thus concluded that the transfer of a single gene encoding a basic elicitin from one species to another can dramatically alter the phenotypic interaction of the transformed species with tobacco.
