“ Candidatus Midichloria” Endosymbionts Bloom after the Blood Meal of the Host, the Hard Tick Ixodes ricinus

Citation

Names
Ca. Midichloria
Abstract
ABSTRACT “ Candidatus Midichloria mitochondrii,” an intracellular symbiont of the tick Ixodes ricinus , is the only described organism able to invade the mitochondria of any multicellular organism. We used quantitative PCR to examine cycles of bacterial growth and death throughout the host's development and found that they correspond with the phases of engorgement and molt, respectively.

A New ‘Candidatus Liberibacter’ Species in Solanum tuberosum in New Zealand

Citation
Liefting et al. (2008). Plant Disease 92 (10)
Names
Liberibacter
Abstract
Symptoms resembling “zebra chip” disease (3) were observed in potato (Solanum tuberosum) tubers harvested from a breeding trial in South Auckland, New Zealand in May 2008. The tubers had necrotic flecking and streaking that became marked when the potatoes were fried. Affected plants generally senesced early, at the beginning of April. The mean yield was approximately 60% less than expected and harvested tubers had less dry matter (13%) than normal (19%). Large numbers of the psyllid Bactericera

A New Huanglongbing Species, “ Candidatus Liberibacter psyllaurous,” Found To Infect Tomato and Potato, Is Vectored by the Psyllid Bactericera cockerelli (Sulc)

Citation
Hansen et al. (2008). Applied and Environmental Microbiology 74 (18)
Names
Ca. Liberibacter psyllaurous
Abstract
ABSTRACT A new huanglongbing (HLB) “ Candidatus Liberibacter” species is genetically characterized, and the bacterium is designated “ Candidatus Liberibacter psyllaurous.” This bacterium infects the psyllid Bactericera cockerelli and its solanaceous host plants potato and tomato, potentially resulting in “psyllid yellowing.” Host plant-dependent HLB transmission and variation in psyllid infection frequ

Evaluation of Antibiotic Therapy for Eradication of “ Candidatus Helicobacter heilmannii”

Citation
Matsui et al. (2008). Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy 52 (8)
Names
Ca. Helicobacter heilmannii
Abstract
ABSTRACT Triple-agent therapy with lansoprazole (15 mg/kg)-clarithromycin (50 mg/kg)-amoxicillin (50 mg/kg) twice daily for 7 days fully cleared “ Candidatus Helicobacter heilmannii” from infected mouse stomachs. Moreover, gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma-like lesions in the stomach nearly disappeared in the treated mice 4 months after the therapy.

Use of real-time PCR to detect Mycoplasma haemofelis and ‘Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum’ in the saliva and salivary glands of haemoplasma-infected cats

Citation
Dean et al. (2008). Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery 10 (4)
Names
Ca. Mycoplasma haemominutum
Abstract
Feline haemoplasma infection can cause haemolytic anaemia. The natural method of transmission of haemoplasmas between cats is currently unknown but the nature of some of the risk factors for infection suggests that saliva may act as a mode of transmission. The aim of this study was to determine if Mycoplasma haemofelis (Mhf) and ‘ Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum’ (CMhm) DNAs could be amplified from saliva and salivary gland samples collected from haemoplasma-infected cats.
