Attempts to eliminate phytoplasmas from grapevine clones by tissue culture techniques


Individual lines of Vitis vinifera Barbera and Chardonnay were obtained by in vitro culture of axillary buds collected from phytoplasma-affected mother plants. The molecular assays did not detect the “flavescence dorée” (FD) phytoplasma in the 66 lines tested after 6-9 months of culture, while the “bois noir”-associated phytoplasma was detected in 22 out of… (More)
