Clover yellow vein virus (ClYVV) causes lethal systemic necrosis in legumes, including broad bean (Vicia faba) and pea (Pisum sativum). To identify host genes involved in necrotic symptom expression after ClYVV infection, we screened cDNA fragments in which expression was changed in advance of necrotic symptom expression in broad bean (V. faba cv. Wase)(More)
Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (Las) is a causal agent of citrus greening disease (CG; Huanglongbing) in Japan. Currently, the midribs of leaves are used to diagnose CG-infected trees. In this study, we sampled branch collars of trees to test for Las. The pathogen was identified more often in the shoot bases than in the petioles, midribs, or shoot tips.(More)
