In 2011, typical symptoms suggestive of phytoplasma infection such as reddening of leaves were observed in peach trees in Fuping, Shaanxi Province, China. Phytoplasma-like bodies were observed by transmission electron microscope in the petiole tissues of symptomatic peach trees. Products of c. 1.2 kb were generated from all symptomatic peach leaf samples by a nested polymerase chain reaction using phytoplasma universal primer pairs P1⁄P7 and R16F2n⁄R16R2, whereas no such amplicon was obtained… Expand
Identification of the phytoplasma associated with peach yellows disease in northwest China
Abstract: Peach yellows disease was identified in a visual survey conducted in Shaanxi, China in 2010 and 2011. Using transmission electron microscopy and a nested PCR assay, the disease wasExpand
Detection and identification of the phytoplasma associated with China ixeris (Ixeridium chinense) fasciation
TLDR
The presence of phytoplasma in China ixeris exhibiting fasciation symptom was confirmed by the results of TEM observation and PCR testing and the associated phy toplasma was classified as related to 16SrI-C subgroup. Expand
PHYTOPLASMAL DISEASES OF PEACH AND ASSOCIATED PHYTOPLASMA TAXA
TLDR
The pathological relevance of several ‘nonpeach’ phytoplasmas requires further investigations as their presence was ascertained by nested PCR assays only. Expand
The Distribution of Phytoplasmas in South and East Asia: An Emerging Threat to Grapevine Cultivation
TLDR
It is suggested that monitoring and control strategies against GY are essential in order to prevent epidemic phytoplasma spread, especially in vine-allocated areas in Asia. Expand
Fruit crop phytoplasmas
TLDR
An outlook is provided on other fruit tree species growing mainly in tropical and subtropical areas that are oftern infected by phytoplasma diseases usually associated with crop losses or loss of fruit quality and marketability. Expand

TLDR
The name 'Candidatus Phy toplasma phoenicium' is proposed for the phytoplasma associated with almond witches'-broom in Lebanon and Iran, which was characterized by sequence analysis of rRNA genes and was shown to be different from the phYtoplasmas previously described in the PPWB group. Expand

TLDR
Sequence analyses of the partial rp genes fragment indicated that the Iranian niger seed phyllody phytoplasma, which was collected from central regions of Iran, is related to 'Candidatus Phy Toplasma asteris', the first report of a phy toplasma infecting the niger Seed plant. Expand
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
'Candidatus Phytoplasma costaricanum' a novel phytoplasma associated with an emerging disease in soybean (Glycine max).
TLDR
A novel phytoplasma associated with a newly emerging disease in soybean, known as soybean stunt (SoyST), was found in 2002 in a soybean plantation in Alajuela Province, Costa Rica and represents a novel taxon, for which the name 'Candidatus Phy toplasma costaricanum' is proposed. Expand
