First Report of "Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" Associated with Psyllid-Affected Carrots in Europe.
TLDR
An investigation on whether this bacterium, Liberibacter solanacearum, is associated with symptoms of psyllid damage on carrots was conducted, finding the first report of this pathogen outside of North and Central America and New Zealand.
Association of “Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum” with the Psyllid, Trioza apicalis (Hemiptera: Triozidae) in Europe
TLDR
This is the first report of a plant pathogen associated with T. apicalis and the second known psyllid species associated with “Ca. L. solanacearum” amplified from several solanaceous crops and the psyllids Bactericera cockerelli (Sulc), a vector of this bacterium.
Vector Transmission Efficiency of Liberibacter by Bactericera cockerelli (Hemiptera: Triozidae) in Zebra Chip Potato Disease: Effects of Psyllid Life Stage and Inoculation Access Period
TLDR
Adult potato psyllids were highly efficient vectors of liberibacter that causes ZC and that nymphs were less efficient than adults at transmitting this bacterium, and inoculation access period had little influence on overall ZC disease incidence, severity, and resulting yield loss.
First Report of 'Candidatus Liberibacter psyllaurous' in Potato Tubers with Zebra Chip Disease in Mexico.
TLDR
To investigate whether liberibacter is associated with ZC in México, 11 potato tuber samples exhibiting strong ZC symptoms and six asymptomatic tubers were collected from a ZC-affected commercial potato field near Saltillo City, Coahuila, MéxICO in September 2008 and tested for this bacterium by PCR.
Phenotypic and Etiological Differences Between Psyllid Yellows and Zebra Chip Diseases of Potato
TLDR
Although an association between liberibacter and ZC has been established, no pathogen is yet associated with potato psyllid yellows and mechanisms by which psyllID yellows symptoms are induced by the potato psyLLid remain unclear.
First Report of "Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" in Tomato Plants in México.
TLDR
To investigate whether liberibacter is associated with permanent yellowing disease of tomato in México, eight symptomatic and five asymptomatic tomato plants were collected from two fields in La Cruz de Elota and Culiacán, Sinaloa.
Effects of Temperature on 'Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum' and Zebra Chip Potato Disease Symptom Development.
TLDR
Experiments indicated that temperatures below 17°C appear to slow development of 'Ca. L. solanacearum' and ZC symptoms, whereas temperatures above 32°C are detrimental to this liberibacter.
Synthesis and regulation of chlorogenic acid in potato: Rerouting phenylpropanoid flux in HQT-silenced lines.
TLDR
Collectively, this research showed that CGA in potatoes is synthesized through HQT and HQT suppression altered phenotype and redirected phenylpropanoid flux.
Impact of Different Potato Psyllid Populations on Zebra Chip Disease Incidence, Severity, and Potato Yield
TLDR
Results indicated that ZC symptom severity in fried chips was correlated with ZC severity in raw tubers and with tuber weight, and the impact of potato psyllid on potato yield and processing quality was highly significant.
First Report of "Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" in Pepper Plants in México.
TLDR
Bell pepper plants exhibiting symptoms that resembled those of potato psyllid damage and "Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" infection were observed in a pepper field in La Cruz de Elota, Sinaloa, México in March 2009, with an infection rate of 1.5%.
