Abstract

Crown gall tumors collected from naturally infected plants of 7 grapevine varieties were analysed for the presence of opines. Eighty-five of the tested 90 samples contained known Agrobacterium vitis-induced opines. Octopine was the most common, it was found in 50 samples. Twenty-eight crown galls contained nopaline and 8 were vitopine positive. There was only one tumor that contained two opines, nopaline and vitopine. Five samples were negative for the opines tested. The presence of A. vitis was confirmed in most of these tumors by PCR analysis. The opine assay may provide a simple diagnostic protocol to distinguish healthy callus tissues from crown galls as well as for the indirect identification of Agrobacterium infection.
