Phylogenomic discernments into Anaerolineaceae thermal adaptations and the proposal of a candidate genus Mesolinea

Citation
Bedoya-Urrego, Alzate (2024). Frontiers in Microbiology 15
Names
“Mesolinea colombiensis”
Abstract
This study delves into the evolutionary history of Anaerolineaceae, a diverse bacterial family within the Chloroflexota phylum. Employing a multi-faceted approach, including phylogenetic analyses, genomic comparisons, and exploration of adaptive features, the research unveils novel insights into the family’s taxonomy and evolutionary dynamics. The investigation employs metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs), emphasizing their prevalence in anaerobic environments. Notably, a novel mesophilic lineage

Pentastiridius leporinus as a Vector of Phloem Restricted Pathogens on Potato: ‘Candidatus Arsenophonus Phytopathogenicus’ and ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma solani’

Citation
Therhaag et al. (2024).
Names
Arsenophonus Ca. Arsenophonus phytopathogenicus Ca. Phytoplasma solani
Abstract
In Germany, the phloem sucking planthopper Pentastiridius leporinus (Hemiptera: Cixiidae) currently represents the epidemiological driver for the spread of the syndrome “Basses Richesses” in sugar beet, which results in a reduced sugar content and an economic loss for the farmers. This disease is associated with the γ-proteobacterium ‘Candidatus Arsenophonus phytopathogenicus’ and the Stolbur phytoplasma ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma solani’. Recently, P. leporinus was found in potato fields in German

Distribuição de Diaphorina citri (Hemiptera: Liviidae) e detecção de Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus em regiões citrícolas do Paraná

Citation
Nunes et al. (2024). CONTRIBUCIONES A LAS CIENCIAS SOCIALES 17 (2)
Names
Liberibacter Ca. Liberibacter africanus Ca. Liberibacter americanus Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
O Huanglongbing (HLB) destaca-se como a doença mais significativa que afeta os cultivos de citros, sendo atribuível a três espécies distintas de α-proteobactérias do gênero Candidatus Liberibacter: Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas), Ca. Liberibacter americanus (CLam) e Ca. Liberibacter africanus (CLaf). No Brasil, o principal vetor para a transmissão de CLas é o psilídeo asiático dos citros, Diaphorina citri (Kuwayama) (Hemiptera: Liviidae). Este estudo tem como objetivo verificar a presença de

Genome Sequence Analysis of Native Xenorhabdus Strains Isolated from Entomopathogenic Nematodes in Argentina

Citation
Palma et al. (2024). Toxins 16 (2)
Names
Abstract
Entomopathogenic nematodes from the genus Steinernema (Nematoda: Steinernematidae) are capable of causing the rapid killing of insect hosts, facilitated by their association with symbiotic Gram-negative bacteria in the genus Xenorhabdus (Enterobacterales: Morganellaceae), positioning them as interesting candidate tools for the control of insect pests. In spite of this, only a limited number of species from this bacterial genus have been identified from their nematode hosts and their insecticidal

Molecular Characterization of ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma prunorum’ in the Czech Republic and Susceptibility of Apricot Rootstocks to the Two Most Abundant Haplotypes

Citation
Kiss et al. (2024). Microorganisms 12 (2)
Names
Ca. Phytoplasma prunorum
Abstract
‘Candidatus Phytoplasma prunorum’ is one of the most destructive pathogens of Prunus species, where susceptible species render unproductive several years after infection. In epidemiology, the molecular characterization of phytoplasmas is based on sequence analysis of variable nonribosomal genes. In this study aceF, pnp, imp and secY genes were used for characterization of the ‘Ca. P. prunorum’ genotypes present in the Czech Republic. In total, 56 plant and 33 vector (Cacopsylla pruni) samples po

Influence of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ infection on carrot root weight in Germany

Citation
Sauer et al. (2024). European Journal of Plant Pathology
Names
“Liberibacter solanacearum”
Abstract
AbstractInfection with the bacterium ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ (Lso) is suspected to cause severe damage in carrot leading to high carrot weight loss. This study investigates three main aspects: (i) whether there is a reduction of carrot root weight under field conditions due to Lso infection; (ii) the correlation between Lso infection rate in carrot plants and occurrence of the psyllid Trioza apicalis as the known vector for Lso in carrot, and (iii) the comparison between symptoms
