Abstract:
Some plants release thousands of viable cells from root caps into the soil. These cells can be technically defined as Root Border Cells (BRD cells) and may play a role in the regulation of microbial populations in the rhizosphere. Chemoattractants released from pea (Pisam sativum) to Agrobacterium tumefaciens were characterized by using lectin and chemical analysis for heat-stability, size, and solubility. To understand the process of BRD cell release, a relationship was established between pectolytic enzyme activity and the release of pea BRD cells.
