The plant international represents an unlimited renewable source for construction of nutrients, chemical compounds and effort. The usage of this source is often constrained via moisture, temperature or salt pressure. The emphasis of this quantity is at the molecular foundation of osmoregulation, version to salt and water pressure and applica­ tions for plant development. A unified notion of drought, salt, thermal and different kinds of tension is proposed and mentioned within the booklet. the amount built from a symposium entitled "Genetic Engi­ neering of Osmoregulation: effect on Plant productiveness for nutrition, chemical compounds and Energy," geared up via D. W. Rains and R. C. Valentine in cooperation with Brookhaven nationwide Laboratory and directed through D. W. Rains and A. Hollaender. this system used to be supported by way of a provide from the nationwide technological know-how Founda~ion, department of challenge centred examine, challenge research crew, and the dept of strength. This symposium is among the some time past and pending which take care of capability purposes of genetic engineering in agri­ tradition. because the query was once raised numerous instances throughout the assembly it really is maybe a handy time to try to outline gene­ tic engineering within the context of the assembly. • Genetic engineering of osmoregulation is just the applying of the technological know-how of genetics towards osmo­ tically tolerant microbes and vegetation. • Recombinant DNA is thought of as simply one other software besides traditional genetics to be applied for development of microbes and plants.

In order to show that TC88 indeed overproduced L-proline, we have grown it to saturation in glucose, L-leucine minimal medium and added aliquots of the sterilized cell supernatant, to cultures in glucose minimal medium of a proC- mutant of Salmonella typhimurium. The latter mutant, being blocked in the last step of L-proline biosynthesis (Sanderson and Hartman, 1978) specifically requires L-proline. 2 ~, while aliquots of the culture medium of the parental strain JL2468, treated in like manner caused no detectable growth of the proC- auxotroph.

One can foresee a general approach to the cloning of simple plant genes that will exploit mobile DNA. elements analogous to bacterial transposons. Transposons (Kleckner, 1977) have proven a powerful tool in bacterial genetics for physically AGROBACTERIUM TI PLASMIDS AS A GENETIC TOOL 29 marking genetic loci of interest. , 1979). DNA of transposable elements can in principle be exploited in plant cells as DNA hybridization probes for isolation of any gene into which they have inserted. The cloning of simple plant genes is a goal that we can confidently expect to see attained.

Oncogenic Agrobacterium stains carry tumor-inducing (Ti) plasmids. A small specific region of the Ti plasmid, called T-DNA, is stably maintained by the transformed plant cells. The tumor tissue, grown axenically (free from bacteria) as a tissue culture line, maintains T-DNA copies for many years. Other parts of the Ti plasmid are not detected in the tumor cells; it is not known whether they are never incorporated into the plant cells, or whether they are incorporated but fail to transform the cells to the tumorous state.
