The phylogenetic relationships of Xylella fastidiosa strains isolated from different hosts, including citrus trees, coffee, grapevine, plum and pear, were inferred by sequence analysis of the 16S rDNA and 16S-23S intergenic spacer region. A high level of similarity (97.1-100%) was found in the 16S rDNA of the Xylella fastidiosa strains. The 16S-23S region showed a higher level of variation, with similarity values ranging from 79.8 to 100%. Two tRNAs (tRNA(Ala) and tRNA(Ile)) were encountered… CONTINUE READING
