Characterization of phenotypically distinct strains of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri from Southwest Asia
Strains of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri were isolated from Mexican lime (Citrus aurantifolia) trees in several countries in southwest Asia. These strains produced typical erumpent bacterialExpand

Genomes of three tomato pathogens within the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex reveal significant evolutionary divergence
BackgroundThe Ralstonia solanacearum species complex includes thousands of strains pathogenic to an unusually wide range of plant species. These globally dispersed and heterogeneous strains causeExpand

Detection of Xanthomonas campestris pv. citri by the polymerase chain reaction method.
pFL1 is a pUC9 derivative that contains a 572-bp EcoRI insert cloned from plasmid DNA of Xanthomonas campestris pv. citri XC62. The nucleotide sequence of pFL1 was determined, and the sequenceExpand

Rapid and sensitive colorimetric detection of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri by immunocapture and a nested-polymerase chain reaction assay.
We have developed a sensitive and specific assay for Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri, the causal agent of citrus bacterial canker. The assay is based on sequential nested amplification by polymeraseExpand

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 wereExpand

Survival of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri in Leaf Lesions Under Tropical Environmental Conditions and Simulated Splash Dispersal of Inoculum.
ABSTRACT Asiatic citrus canker (ACC) is a severe disease of several citrus species and hybrids in many tropical and subtropical areas. Populations of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri in leaf and twigExpand

Evolutionary History of the Plant Pathogenic Bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis
Deciphering mechanisms shaping bacterial diversity should help to build tools to predict the emergence of infectious diseases. Xanthomonads are plant pathogenic bacteria found worldwide. XanthomonasExpand

Polyphasic characterization of xanthomonads pathogenic to members of the Anacardiaceae and their relatedness to species of Xanthomonas.
We have used amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA) and DNA-DNA hybridization for genotypic classification of Xanthomonas pathovars associated with theExpand

Polyphasic characterization of xanthomonads isolated from onion, garlic and Welsh onion (Allium spp.) and their relatedness to different Xanthomonas species.
Bacterial blight is an emerging disease that affects primarily onion, but also garlic and Welsh onion. The present study was undertaken to characterize the causative xanthomonad(s) by a polyphasicExpand
