In the southeastern USA, Armillaria root rot disease on peach (Prunus persica) is caused by Armillaria tabescens, and to a lesser degree by A. mellea. Recent attempts to genetically characterize A. tabescens isolates using rDNA indicated the existence of heterozygosity in diploid isolates. In order to clarify this heterozygosity, DNA from stipe and single spore cultures of A. tabescens isolate SC.MF-1.01 was characterized using RFLP and sequence analysis. Direct sequencing of rDNA amplicons… CONTINUE READING
