Notes and applications

characterization (Panagopoulos, C G, Psallidas, P G, Characteristics of Greek isolates of Agrobacterium tumefaciens (Smith and Townsend), Conn J Appl Bacteriol, 36, 233, 1973)

ID checked by 16S sequencing. Similarity to "Agrobacterium fabrum" type strain (C58, ATCC 33970) GenBank  NR_074266.1 is 100%. 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. (F. Lassalle, T. Campillo, L. Vial, J. Baude, D. Costechareyre, D. Chapulliot, M. Shams, D. Abrouk, C. Lavire, C. Oger-Desfeux, F. Hommais, L. Gueguen, V. Daubin, D. Muller, X. Nesme 2011.
