Bacterial leaf blight (BLB) caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is a very serious disease in rice-growing regions of the world. In spite of their economic importance, there are no effective ways of protecting rice plants from this disease. Bacteriophages infecting Xoo affect the population dynamics of the pathogen and consequently the occurrence of the disease. In this study, we investigated the diversity, host range, and infectivity of Xoo phages, and their use as a bicontrol agent…

Identification and characterization of five new OP2-related Myoviridae bacteriophages infecting different strains of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae

Electron microscopy showed that the five Xoo bacteriophages have contractile tails thus all belong to the family Myoviridae possessing icosahedral heads, necks and base plates with tail fibres, and confirmed that they had the expected double-stranded DNA genomes.

Isolation and characterization of a novel phage Xoo-sp2 that infects Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae.

This work characterized a novel Xanthomonas phage and demonstrated its potential as a prophylactic agent in the control of BLB in rice.

Phage Biocontrol of Bacterial Leaf Blight Disease on Welsh Onion Caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. allii

The results show that treatment with Φ31 alone provides higher disease prevention than the two other phages or the phage cocktail, and phage treatment also significantly improved yield, showing the potential of phage as a biocontrol strategy for managing leaf blight in Welsh onion.

Management of Bacterial Leaf Blight Disease of Paddy (Oryza sativa) Caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae Using Bacteriophages

ISSN: 2319-7706 Special Issue-7 pp. 3066-3080 Journal homepage: http://www.ijcmas.com Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is the pathogen causing bacterial leaf blight (BLB) disease in paddy crop and

Characterization of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. punicae (Hingorani and Singh) Vauterin et al. and Isolation of Xap Specific Bacteriophage

Molecular confirmation of Xap through 16S rRNA sequencing gave the amplicon of 1500 bp size and amplification through KKM5 and KkM6 further confirmed specific identity, and disease severity on test plants were studied to know the degree of virulence and variability among the isolates.

Nettle manure: an unsuspected source of bacteriophages active against various phytopathogenic bacteria.

Strong homology between the two isolated phages, a high degree of sequence similarity to various phages isolated from various environments and from different geographical locations, and similarity of these phages to members of the family Autographiviridae, and more precisely, the genus Ghunavirus are revealed.

Bacteriophage-Mediated Control of Phytopathogenic Xanthomonads: A Promising Green Solution for the Future

This paper investigates the legal background and industrial property right issues of bacteriophage-based biopesticides, a possibility that is untapped in the control of xanthomonads in the future.

Bacteriophage therapy against plant, animal and human pathogens

The current knowledge on phage therapy, its advantages and potential drawbacks are summarized and the application of phages against plant pathogens, especially Erwinia amylovora, and the current status of phage Therapy against food-borne, animal and human pathogens is presented.

Complete Genome Sequences of 10 Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae Bacteriophages

The complete genome sequences of 10 newly isolated OP2-like X. oryzae pv.oryzae bacteriophages are reported, suggesting that the application of bacteriophile may provide an effective tool against this bacterium.



Bacteriophages of Erwinia amylovora

A study of the host ranges of the phages revealed that certain types were unable to efficiently lyse some E. amylovora strains and that some isolates were able to lyse the epiphytic bacterium Pantoea agglomerans.

H-mutant bacteriophages as a potential biocontrol of bacterial blight of geranium

Three experiments were designed to determine the efficacy of using a mixture of four h-mutant phages to control the spread of the bacterial blight pathogen on potted and seedling geraniums under greenhouse conditions and disease incidence and severity were less for plants treated daily with phage than for those treated less frequently with phages or with Phyton-27 ®.

Isolation of Bacteriophages Specific to a Fish Pathogen, Pseudomonas plecoglossicida, as a Candidate for Disease Control

The results suggest that it may be possible to use phage to control the disease caused by P. plecoglossicida, and bacterial growth in freshwater was lower in the presence of phage, and the number ofphage PFU increased rapidly.

Bacteriophage OP1, lytic for Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, changes its host range by duplication and deletion of the small domain in the deduced tail fiber gene

It is suggested that the host range of OP1-related phages changed mainly through duplication and deletion of a small domain in ORF25, which had similarity with the tail fiber gene of phages, whose product is related to host specificity.

Genome of Xanthomonas oryzae bacteriophage Xp10: an odd T-odd phage.

Bacteriophages of Plant Pathogens

The phages of plant pathogens are introduced together with the present knowledge for the first time in relation to basic research of their nature.

Integration of Biological Control Agents and Systemic Acquired Resistance Inducers Against Bacterial Spot on Tomato.

Integrated use of acibenzolar-S-methyl and phages may complement each other as an alternative management strategy against bacterial spot on tomato and provide excellent disease control.

Sequence analysis of the genome of OP2, a lytic bacteriophage of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae

The results suggest that the genome sequence of OP2 is circularly permuted and terminally redundant, like that of coliphages T4 or P22, and some of the genetic characters have features of temperate phages.

Comparison of Genomes of Three Xanthomonas oryzae Bacteriophages

Geographical separation may have confined lateral gene transfer among the Xoo phages and the HNN-AP2 type endonucleases were more likely to transfer their genes randomly in the genome and may degenerate after successful transmission.
