  • Southern blot hybridization analysis revealed that the extrachromosomal DNAs (EC-DNAs) associated with Vaccinium witches' broom (VAC) and walnut witches' broom phytoplasmas and various strains of the Italian clover phyllody phytoplasma (ICPh) were highly homologous among themselves but distinct from EC-DNAs of aster yellows related phytoplasmas occurring in the same insect and plant hosts and collected at the same site as the ICPh strains. The EC-DNAs of various strains of the ICPh differed… CONTINUE READING
