Effect of Oxygen on the Growth and Biofilm Formation of Xylella fastidiosa in Liquid Media

Abstract

Xylella fastidiosa is a xylem-limited bacterial pathogen, and is the causative agent of Pierce’s disease of grapevines and scorch diseases of many other plant species. The disease symptoms are putatively due to blocking of the transpiration stream by bacterial-induced biofilm formation and/or by the formation of plant-generated tylosis. Xylella fastidiosa… (More)
