The Detection and Molecular Characterization of a Phytoplasma Associated with Machorreo of Lulo (Solanum quitoense) in Colombia


This study is the first to report a phytoplasma associated with machorreo in lulo. We detected the presence of a phytoplasma in association with machorreo in lulo, using phylogenetic analysis and homology with the sequence of the 16S rRNA region and the gene tRNA. We identified the phytoplasma as belonging to the 16Sr III group (Xdisease; 97% homology). For… (More)
