A novel phytoplasma was detected in a cherry plum (Prunus cerasifera Ehrh) tree that mainly showed yellow leaf symptom. The tree was growing in an orchard located in Yangling District, Shaanxi Province, China. The leaves started as chlorotic and yellowing along leaf minor veins and leaf tips. Chlorosis rapidly developed to inter-veinal areas with the whole leaf becoming pale yellow in about 1-4 wk. Large numbers of phytoplasma-like bodies (PLBs) were seen under transmission electron microscopy… Expand

TLDR
Phytoplasma DNA was detected in magnolias with severe symptoms and in dodder-inoculated Catharanthus roseus seedlings by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay with primer pair R16F1/R0 followed by universal and group specific primer pairs which amplified a fragment of phy toplasma 16S rDNA.

TLDR
Japanese plum trees showing symptoms of phytoplasma disease including little leaf, leaf rolling, rosetting, yellowing and shoot proliferation, and major stone fruit production areas in ChaharMahal- O-Bakhtiari, Isfahan and Tehran provinces in central Iran are observed. Expand
Detection of multiple phytoplasmas in perennial fruit trees with decline symptoms in Italy
TLDR
Investigation of etiologies of diseases associated with pear decline, plum leptonecrosis, nectarine chlorotic leaf roll, and apricot fruit crops grown in northern Italy revealed that two to four distinct types of phytoplasmas affiliated with phy toplasmas 16S rRNA group I, group III, group IV, group V, and group V were associated with most diseases.

TLDR
It is shown that WBD was caused by a 16SrI-C phytoplasma transmitted by Psammotettix striatus, and this finding was based on molecular diagnostics, insect transmission trials, and host-range determination. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that TYLCV has begun to establish itself in others crops since it was first reported to be infecting tomato in Sinaloa, Mexico. Expand
Histopathology and Within-Plant Distribution of the Phytoplasma Associated with Australian Papaya Dieback.
TLDR
It is concluded that phytoplasma cells are present in very low titer in die back-affected tissues and that, while the plant appears to limit proliferation of the dieback-associated pathogen, this defense strategy is ultimately unsuccessful because it is associated with a rapid decline of the papaya plant.

Classification of phytoplasma strains in the elm yellows group (16SrV) and proposal of 'Candidatus Phytoplasma ulmi' for the phytoplasma associated with elm yellows.
TLDR
It is proposed that the elm yellows phytoplasma EY1(T) represents a novel taxon, 'Candidatus Phy toplasma ulmi', which appears to have evolved under different ecological constraints such as specific vector or plant hosts. Expand
Graft and dodder transmission of phytoplasma affecting lily to experimental hosts
TLDR
Attempts to transmit phytoplasma from naturally infected lily and experimentally infected Alstroemeria to Catharanthus roseus by top grafting resulted in stunted growth, dull yellowing and malformation of the leaves in 4–6 weeks. Expand
