Abstract

The virulence genes of Agrobacterium tumefaciens are specifically activated by plant phenolic compounds and allow this organism to genetically transform plant cells. New types of phenolic compounds, three phenol amides derived from syringic acid, were synthesized. Introduction of an amide group in syringic acid strongly enhances its vir gene inducing activity.
