AtCBF1 transgenic plants exhibit enhanced resistance to Ralstonia solanacearum. A, Test plants were inoculated with Ralstonia and then kept at 28°C with a photoperiod of 16 h. A photograph was taken at 7 days post-inoculation (dpi). The test plants comprised wild-type plants Figure 1C (susceptible variety 5915, the genetic background of transformants), a bacterial wilt-resistant wilt resistant control variety (H7996), a control transgenic line (AC3, AtCBF1 driven by ABA-inducible ABRC1 promoter), and T2 transgenic plants continuous expressing AtCBF1 (C5, C15, C21 and C22). B, Ralstonia multiplication in transgenic tomato plants was systemically suppressed. The bacterial titer inside the test plants was measured in different tissues 7 dpi. The data are means of three independent measurements. C, Disease progression of BW was delayed in transgenic tomato plants plants. The response of plants subjected to BW bioassays was scored as the percentage of wilted plants over time.
