Comparison of the Genome Sequences of “Candidatus Portiera aleyrodidarum” Primary Endosymbionts of the Whitefly Bemisia tabaci B and Q Biotypes

Citation
Jiang et al. (2013). Applied and Environmental Microbiology 79 (5)
Names
Ca. Portiera aleyrodidarum
Abstract
ABSTRACT“CandidatusPortiera aleyrodidarum” is the primary endosymbiont of whiteflies. We report two complete genome sequences of this bacterium from the worldwide invasive B and Q biotypes of the whiteflyBemisia tabaci. Differences in the two genome sequences may add insights into the complex differences in the biology of both biotypes.

Heat Treatment Eliminates ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ from Infected Citrus Trees Under Controlled Conditions

Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
Huanglongbing (HLB) is one of the most destructive diseases of citrus worldwide. The three known causal agents of HLB are species of α-proteobacteria: ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’, ‘Ca. L. africanus’, and ‘Ca. L. americanus’. Previous studies have found distinct variations in temperature sensitivity and tolerance among these species. Here, we describe the use of controlled heat treatments to cure HLB caused by ‘Ca. L. asiaticus’, the most prevalent and heat-tolerant species. Using temper

Amantichitinum ursilacus gen. nov., sp. nov., a chitin-degrading bacterium isolated from soil

Names
Amantichitinum
Abstract
A bacterial strain named IGB-41T was isolated from a soil sample from an ant hill near Stuttgart, Germany. The strain was Gram-negative, rod-shaped, motile and facultatively anaerobic. Phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA grouped the strain IGB-41T within the class Betaproteobacteria into the family Neisseriaceae togeth
