Pathological Variations Within Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae Support Its Separation Into Three Distinct Pathovars that Can Be Distinguished by Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism.
ABSTRACT Bacterial black spot, caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. mangiferaeindicae, is an important disease of mango (Mangifera indica). Several other plant genera of the family Anacardiaceae were
Pseudomonas aeruginosa Outbreak Linked to Mineral Water Bottles in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: Fast Typing by Use of High-Resolution Melting Analysis of a Variable-Number Tandem-Repeat Locus
TLDR
VNTR typing with one primer pair in association with HRMA is highly reproducible and discriminative, easily portable among laboratories, fast, and inexpensive, and it demonstrated excellent typeability in this study.
Polyphasic characterization of xanthomonads pathogenic to members of the Anacardiaceae and their relatedness to species of Xanthomonas.
TLDR
The causal agents of mango bacterial canker and cashew bacterial spot should be classified as pathovars of Xanthomonas citri, namely X. citri pv.
Genetic and Pathological Diversity Among Xanthomonas Strains Responsible for Bacterial Spot on Tomato and Pepper in the Southwest Indian Ocean Region.
TLDR
This study provides the first ever comprehensive description of the status of Xanthomonas species that cause bacterial spot of tomato and pepper in the southwest Indian Ocean region, and identifies X. euvesicatoria as the species recovered prevalently.
Amplified fragment length polymorphism and multilocus sequence analysis-based genotypic relatedness among pathogenic variants of Xanthomonas citri pv. citri and Xanthomonas campestris pv. bilvae.
TLDR
Three pathogenic variants have been described within Xanthomonas citri pv.
Specific Detection of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. dieffenbachiae in Anthurium (Anthurium andreanum) Tissues by Nested PCR
TLDR
A nested PCR test was developed from a sequence-characterized amplified region marker identified by randomly amplified polymorphic DNA PCR for the detection of X. dieffenbachiae, the causal agent of anthurium bacterial blight, and the detection threshold obtained with pure cultures or plant extracts allowed detection of the pathogen from symptomless contaminated plants.
First Report of Xanthomonas cucurbitae Causing Bacterial Leaf Spot of Pumpkin on Réunion Island.
TLDR
No major outbreak of bacterial leaf spot of cucurbits has been reported on Réunion Island since 2000 on any host species of X. cucurbitae, and the reported outbreak was circumscribed to a single field and did not affect the local industry.
Comparative and collaborative studies for the validation of a nested PCR for the detection of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. dieffenbachiae from Anthurium samples
TLDR
N-PCR had undeniable advantages compared to the reference method (less labour-intensive and less time-consuming) and was included in a revised version of the EPPO detection protocol.
Stock structure of the swordfish (Xiphias gladius) in the southwest Indian Ocean: A preliminary study
TLDR
Stock structure of swordfish from four areas of the South West Indian Ocean was conducted using Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) on mtDNA control region and six amplified microsatellite loci, suggesting a unique stock ofswordfish in the SouthWest Indian Ocean.
