Abstract
AbstractHuanglongbing (HLB, or citrus greening disease) affects all citrus varieties world-wide. In the USA, Asia, and South America the causal agent is “CandidatusLiberibacter asiaticus” (CLas), a phloem-limited, uncultured, alphaproteobacterium. The hemipteran insect vector,Diaphorina citri(Asian citrus psyllid) acquires and transmitsCLas in a circulative, propagative manner. In addition toCLas,D. citrihosts multiple symbiotic bacteria includingWolbachia(wDi). InD. citri, wDi has been sequence

Strain Tracking of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’, the Citrus Greening Pathogen, by High-Resolution Microbiome Analysis of Asian Citrus Psyllids

Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
The Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri, is an invasive insect and a vector of ‘ Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ ( CLas), a bacterium whose growth in Citrus species results in huanglongbing (HLB), also known as citrus greening disease. Methods to enrich and sequence CLas from D. citri often rely on biased genome amplification and nevertheless contain significant quantities of host DNA. To overcome these hurdles, we developed a simple pretreatment DNase and filtration (PDF) protocol to rem

Direct DNA sequencing of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ from Diaphorina citri, the Asian citrus psyllid, and its implications for citrus greening disease management

Abstract
AbstractThe Asian citrus psyllid, Diaphorina citri is an invasive insect 1 and a vector of ’Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’ (CLas), a bacterium whose growth in Citrus species results in citrus greening disease 2,3. Methods to enrich and sequence CLas from D. citri often rely on biased genome amplification 4 and nevertheless contain significant quantities of host DNA 5,6. To overcome these hurdles, we developed a simple pre-treatment DNase and filtration (hereafter PDF) protocol to directly se

Diaphorina citri Nymphs Are Resistant to Morphological Changes Induced by “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” in Midgut Epithelial Cells

Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
ABSTRACT “ Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” is the causative bacterium associated with citrus greening disease. “ Ca . Liberibacter asiaticus” is transmitted by Diaphorina citri more efficiently when it is acquired by nymphs rather than adults. Why this occurs is not known. We compared midguts of D. citri insects reared on healthy or “ Ca . Liberibacter
