Cover for Phytoplasmas: genomes, plant hosts and vectors.

This book tries to examine all aspects related to phytoplasmas, their plant hosts and insect vectors. The opening chapter is followed by chapters on sequencing and functional genomics, which relies heavily on comparing phytoplasma genomics with that of other known bacteria. Three chapters take...

Cover for Phytoplasma genomics, from sequencing to comparative and functional genomics - what have we learnt?

This chapter reviews the technical procedures that led to the completion of the four phytoplasma genomes, as well as the similarities and differences in genome content and composition among the four phytoplasmas. It also describes how mining of phytoplasma genome sequence data can lead to the...

Cover for Functional genomics of phytoplasmas.

To understand the phytoplasma-host interactions, it is important to identify the functions of membrane proteins or secreted proteins encoded in phytoplasma genomes. This chapter reviews recent reports regarding the secretion system and the membrane protein of phytoplasmas.

Cover for Prospects of multiple gene-based systems for differentiation and classification of phytoplasmas.

In the last decade, several other conserved genes or specific genomic DNA fragments have been employed as supplementary molecular markers for finer differentiation of closely related phytoplasma strains. This chapter summarizes the recent progress on this account and proposes additional potential...

Cover for Recent advances in 16S rRNA gene-based phytoplasma differentiation, classification and taxonomy.

This chapter focuses on recent advances in 16S rRNA gene-based phytoplasma differentiation, classification and taxonomy. As more phytoplasma genome information becomes available, multi-locus sequence analyses will certainly provide additional information to the 16S rRNA gene-based phylogenetic...

Cover for Phytoplasma phylogeny and detection based on genes other than 16S rRNA.

Phytoplasma diagnostics and phylogenetics have historically been based on the 16S rRNA gene and the 16S-23S rRNA spacer region because of the availability of universal primers for this region. However, it is well known that phylogenetics based on a single, highly conserved gene has limitations,...

Cover for Movement of phytoplasmas and the development of disease in the plant.

This chapter discusses the movement of phytoplasmas within the host plant and their final distribution in various organs, which is essential for understanding the phytoplasma-plant host interactions. Studies are presented on movement, distribution and multiplication of phytoplasmas in plants and...
