'Candidatus Erwinia dacicola', a coevolved symbiotic bacterium of the olive fly Bactrocera oleae (Gmelin).
TLDR
A novel species is proposed, by virtue of its unique properties, under the designation 'Candidatus Erwinia dacicola', which differs from common intestinal bacterial species of fruit flies and from instances of culturable bacteria previously described in B. oleae raised without sterility precautions.
'Candidatus Phytoplasma', a taxon for the wall-less, non-helical prokaryotes that colonize plant phloem and insects.
The trivial name 'phytoplasma' has been adopted to collectively name wall-less, non-helical prokaryotes that colonize plant phloem and insects, which were formerly known as mycoplasma-like organisms.
Phylogenetic classification of phytopathogenic mollicutes by sequence analysis of 16S ribosomal DNA.
The phylogenetic relationships of 17 phytopathogenic mycoplasmalike organisms (MLOs) representing seven major taxonomic groups established on the basis of MLO 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) restriction
Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae Draft Genomes Comparison Reveal Strain-Specific Features Involved in Adaptation and Virulence to Actinidia Species
TLDR
Several lines of evidence from the analysis of the genome sequences support the hypothesis that this strain did not evolve from the Psa population that caused the epidemics in Japan and Italy but rather is the product of a recent independent evolution of the pathovar actinidiae for infecting Actinidia spp.
SHORT TAXONOMIC GUIDE TO THE GENUS ‘CANDIDATUS PHYTOPLASMA’
TLDR
The characteristics and composition of the genus ‘Ca. Phytoplasma’ are provided, which takes into account both the phylogenetic and the biological/ ecological characteristics of the organisms.
Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae: a re-emerging, multi-faceted, pandemic pathogen.
TLDR
An integrated approach that takes into consideration precise scheduled spray treatments with effective and environmentally friendly bactericides and equilibrated plant nutrition, coupled with preventive measures aimed at drastically reducing the bacterial inoculum, currently seems to be the possible best solution for coexistence with the disease.
COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF NAMES OF PLANT PATHOGENIC BACTERIA, 1980-2007
The names of all plant pathogenic bacteria which have been effectively and validly published in terms of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria and the Standards for Naming Pathovars are
Genome drafts of four phytoplasma strains of the ribosomal group 16SrIII.
TLDR
The results indicated the significant role of horizontal gene transfer among different 'Candidatus Phy toplasma' species in shaping phytoplasma genomes and promoting their diversity.
Polymorphisms in nuclear rDNA and mtDNA reveal the polyphyletic nature of isolates of Phomopsis pathogenic to sunflower and a tight monophyletic clade of defined geographic origin.
TLDR
The molecular diversity of Diaporthe helianthi (anamorph Phomopsis helianTHi), the causal agent of sunflower stem canker, was studied in 16 isolates of different geographic origin using nuclear and mitochondrial markers and revealed a marked diversity within the sunflower-isolated strains.
A rapid method for detection of fumonisins B1 and B2 in corn meal using Fourier transform near infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy implemented with integrating sphere.
TLDR
It is suggested that FT-NIR analysis is a suitable method to detect FB(1)+FB(2) in corn meal and to discriminate safe meals from those contaminated.
