Host range testing and RFLP analysis of wheat blue dwarf phytoplasma

  author={An Feng-qiu},
Wheat blue dwarf(WBD)is the first phytoplasma disease on wheat.Inoculating test plants through vector,observing symptom and using universal primers(R16mF2/R16mR1)for phytoplasma 16S rDNA were conducted.1.4 kb DNA fragments were amplified by polymerase chain reaction(PCR)in DNA samples extracted from inoculated wheat and viruliferous Psammotettix striatus L.respectively.And 7 new host plants of WBD were discovered in the lab.1.2 kb DNA fragments were amplified by Nested-PCR in 10 naturally… Expand
Identification of elm yellows phytoplasma in plum trees in China.
Plum plants (Prunus cerasifera Ehrh) with small and rolled leaves resembling symptoms of phytoplasma infection were observed during 2008 and 2009 in the ornamental garden of Northwest A&F UniversityExpand
Analyses of circular DNA molecules in the leafhopper Psammotettix alienus for identification of viruses and plasmids
Results of this study show that RCA is able to assist in detecting a range of viruses and plasmids and circular DNA of a bacteriophage known as sphinx, which is reported to be similar to phages infecting bacteria of the genus Acinetobacter. Expand
Identification of RNA silencing suppressor encoded by wheat blue dwarf (WBD) phytoplasma.
It is concluded that SWP16 encoded by WBD phytoplasma was an RNA silencing suppressor suppressing systemic RNA silencer, which laid theoretical basis for researches on interaction mechanism between pathogens and plants. Expand
Identification of wheat blue dwarf phytoplasma effectors targeting plant proliferation and defence responses
Results indicated that SWP21 has a distinct role in virulence compared with TENGU and that WBD phytoplasma possesses effectors that target plant proliferation and defence responses. Expand
Phytoplasma effector SWP1 induces witches' broom symptom by destabilizing the TCP transcription factor BRANCHED1.
It is suggested that the phytoplasma effector SWP1 induces witches' broom symptoms through targeting of BRC1 and promoting its degradation via a proteasome system. Expand
