Using agrobacterial transformation collection of /pr-transgenic plants based on cv. Adretta was obtained. Analysis of transgenic plants susceptibility to the exogenous phytohormones auxin (IAA) and cytokinin (kinetin) for 18 from 22 analyzed forms reveals altered reaction to hormones. Among 18 plants with altered reaction to phytohormones for 16 forms enhanced resistance to copper sulfate and/or nickel chloride was observed
