  • Examination of the salivary glands and the saliva of the six-spotted leafhopper, Macrosteles fascifrons (Stal), with the transmission electron microscope revealed three kinds of membrane-limited bodies. Typical mycoplasma-like bodies (MLBs) were found in the salivary glands of leafhoppers transmitting aster yellows, but were absent in those never exposed to a disease source. Rickettsia-like bodies (RLBs) and other small bodies named salivary bodies (SBs), apparently associated with the… CONTINUE READING
