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.
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.
Genomic Survey of Pathogenicity Determinants and VNTR Markers in the Cassava Bacterial Pathogen Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. Manihotis Strain CIO151
Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis (Xam) is the causal agent of bacterial blight of cassava, which is among the main components of human diet in Africa and South America. Current information about
Laccase isoenzyme patterns of European Armillaria species from culture filtrates and infected woody plant tissues
TLDR
Polyacrylamide isoelectric focusing with specific staining for laccase activity was used to characterize laccases from European Armillaria species, finding differences in banding patterns according to the species and the culture media.
Micropropagation of Psiadia arguta through cotyledonary axillary bud culture
TLDR
MS basal medium supplemented with TDZ proved to be the most effective medium for the induction of cotyledonary axillary buds as compared to MS medium containing NAA or both NAA and TDZ, and Hormone-free MS8900 was the best medium for rooting and development of plantlets for acclimatization.
Multiplex Nested PCR for Detection of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. allii from Onion Seeds
TLDR
A multiplex nested PCR assay developed using two randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) sequences corresponding to pilus assembly genes (pilW and pilX) and the avrRxv gene should be useful for certifying that commercial seed lots are free of this important seed-borne pathogen.
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.
