Using the PCR, we amplified the 16S ribosomal DNAs (rDNAs) of an Asian strain and an African strain of the uncultured, gram-negative, walled, phloem-limited bacterium-like organism (BLO) associated with citrus greening disease. We evaded coamplification of chloroplast 16S rDNA by using restriction enzymes; the chloroplast 16S rDNA was sensitive to BclI(More)
Greening is a severe and widespread disease of citrus in two main citrus growing areas of the world, Asia and Africa. It is caused by an uncultured phloem restricted bacterium that we have recently characterized from the sequence of its 16S ribosomal DNA. The bacterium is a new "Candidatus' genus, Liberobacter, in the alpha subdivision of the(More)
16S/23S intergenic spacer regions from the rRNA operons of two strains of "Candidatus Liberobacter asiaticum" and one strain of "Candidatus Liberobacter africanum" were cloned and sequenced. The intergenic spacers of the two "Candidatus L. asiaticum" strains studied are identical and contain the genes for isoleucine tRNA (tRNA(Ile)) and alanine tRNA(More)
Greening disease of citrus is caused by a phloem-restricted, uncultured bacterium, recently characterized and named Liberobacter. As shown previously, a probe encoding ribosomal protein genes (rplKAJL-rpoBC operon) from an Asian liberobacter could detect all Asian liberobacter strains tested, but not African strains. Using the sequence of the rplKAJL-rpoBC(More)
Internodes of deepwater rice are induced to grow rapidly when plants become submerged. This adaptation enables deepwater rice to keep part of its foliage above the rising flood waters during the monsoon season and to avoid drowning. This growth response is, ultimately, elicited by the plant hormone gibberellin (GA). The primary target tissue for GA action(More)
16S/23S intergenic spacer regions from the rRNA operons of two strains of “Candidatus Liberobacter asiaticum” and one strain of “Candidatus Liberobacter africanum” were cloned and sequenced. The intergenic spacers of the two “Candidatus L. asiaticum” strains studied are identical and contain the genes for isoleucine tRNA (tRNA”‘) and alanine tRNA (tRNAMa)(More)
