Abstract

Agrobacterium has been used to transform zero to six-day-old cell wall nonregenerating (CWNR) and cell wall regenerating (CWR) leaf protoplasts of tobacco. Transformed cells were selected by phoytohormone autotrophic growth and were verified by detection of the presence of lysopine dehydrogenase. Transformation frequencies in CWNR protoplasts were at least as high as those in CWR protoplasts, indicating that a plant cell wall is not required for the process of crown gall tumorigenesis. Transformation frequencies were highest in two-day-old protoplasts. This age coincides with the onset of DNA synthesis and the first mitosis within the cell populations. We suggest that the initiation of cell cycle activity may be important for the transformation process.
