Sequence and RFLP analysis of the elongation factor Tu gene used in differentiation and classification of phytoplasmas.
The tuf gene has the potential to be used to differentiate and classify phytoplasmas and was shown to be present as a single copy in aster yellows and stolbur groups.
'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.…
Detection and genetic relatedness of phytoplasmas associated with plant diseases in Thailand
Spacer region sequence analysis showed that the 3 groups of phytoplasmas formed distinct phylogenetic clusters, and within the white leaf cluster, SCWL and SCGS were more closely related to each other than they were to BGWL and CGWL.
SHORT TAXONOMIC GUIDE TO THE GENUS ‘CANDIDATUS PHYTOPLASMA’
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.

ABSTRACT The chromosome sequence of “Candidatus Phytoplasma australiense” (subgroup tuf-Australia I; rp-A), associated with dieback in papaya, Australian grapevine yellows in grapevine, and several…
Detection and differentiation of phytoplasmas in Australia: an update
Seven new restriction fragment patterns have been detected and sequence analysis of the 16S/23S spacer region revealed that 3 of these phytoplasmas are related to the faba bean phyllody (FBP) group, members of phy toplasmas groups that have not been reported before in Australia.

Findings from hypolithic cyanobacteria found under three types of translucent rocks in a semiarid region of tropical Australia are reported, which identified 115 operational taxonomic units (OTUs), with each rock hosting 8-24 OTUs.
Diversity of phytoplasmas in northern Australian sugarcane and other grasses
Diversity of phytoplasmas and grass host species in northern Australia is greater than previously thought, and that symptoms alone are not always reliable indicators ofphytoplasma presence or absence is demonstrated.
Molecular detection of the Australian grapevine yellows phytoplasma and comparison with grapevine yellows phytoplasmas from Italy
Results showed that Australian grapevine yellows is associated with a unique phytoplasma that is more closely related to the phy toplasmas of the aster yellows group than to those of the elm yellsows group.
A comparison of the phytoplasma associated with Australian grapevine yellows to other phytoplasmas in grapevine
It was shown that AGY is different from the tomato big bud and sweet potato little leaf phy toplasma strains which are widespread in Australia and that it represents the only other phytoplasma strain recorded in Australia to date.
