Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas) is the causative agent of Huanglongbing (HLB), which has caused great economic losses to the citrus industry. The molecular mechanism of the host response to CLas in wild citrus germplasm has been reported less. Eighteen weeks after inoculation via grafting, all the CLas-inoculated Chongyi wild mandarin (Citrus reticulata) were positive and showed severe anatomical aberrations, suggesting its susceptibility to HLB.
