characterization (Panagopoulos, C G, Psallidas, P G, Characteristics of Greek isolates of Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Smith and Townsend), Conn J Appl Bacteriol, 36, 233, 1973)
16S sequence shows only 97% similarity to the sequence of Rhizobium radiobacter. Lassalle and co-workers recently showed that the strain represents a new species and suggested the name Agrobacterium fabrum. However, no formal species description was proposed.
