Abstract
‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ (Lso) is a phloem-limited bacterial plant pathogen infecting solanaceous plants in the Americas and New Zealand and is associated with diseases of apiaceous crops in Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East. This pathogen is also related to other Liberibacter species that infect other crops. In the USA, two haplotypes of Lso, LsoA and LsoB, are predominant and responsible for diseases in potato and tomato. Tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum, a model species to

Lso-HPE1, an Effector of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’, Can Repress Plant Immune Response

Abstract
‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ is a plant pathogen affecting the families Solanaceae and Apiaceae in different parts of the world. ‘Ca. L. solanacearum’ is a Gram-negative, fastidious α-proteobacterium that is vectored by different psyllid species. Plant-pathogenic bacteria are known for interfering with the host physiology or defense mechanisms, often by secreting bacterial effectors. Effector proteins are critical for virulence; therefore, the identification of effectors could help wi

Infection by Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ haplotypes A and B in Solanum lycopersicum ‘Moneymaker’

Abstract
‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ is a plant pathogen associated with diseases affecting several crops of the Solanaceae and Apiaceae families. Two ‘Ca. L. solanacearum’ haplotypes (LsoA and LsoB) infect solanaceous crops in North America and are transmitted by the tomato psyllid Bactericera cockerelli. Although both ‘Ca. L. solanacearum’ haplotypes cause zebra chip in potato, the diseases associated with each haplotype in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) have not been described. ‘Ca. L. sola
