Occurrence of ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris’-Related Strains infecting Chinaberry (Melia azedarach) Showing Chlorotic Leaf Symptoms on Hainan Island of China

Ca. Phytoplasma asteris
Abstract
Chinaberry (Melia azedarach), belonging to the family of Meliaceae, is an ornamental tree distributes across southern of China. In the autumn of 2021, In an area of 400 acres located in Wanning city of Hainan Province, a tropical island in China, with coordinates of 110°28′42.72″E, 19°2′9.96″N, about 20 % (100) of the chinaberry trees showed disease symptoms included chlorotic leaves. The disease symptoms were consistent with infections by a phloem-limited prokaryotic pathogen phytoplasma. The

Sub-optimal temperatures lead to altered expression of stress-related genes and increased ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’ accumulation in potato psyllid

Names
“Liberibacter solanacearum”
Abstract
IntroductionThe potato psyllid Bactericera cockerelli is the insect vector of the fastidious bacterium ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’. The bacterium infects both B. cockerelli and plant species, causing zebra chip (ZC) disease of potato and vein-greening disease of tomato. Temperatures are known to influence the initiation and progression of disease symptom in the host plant, and seasonal transitions from moderate to high temperatures trigger psyllid dispersal migration to facilitate sur

Improving the Comprehension of Pathogenicity and Phylogeny in ‘Candidatus Phytoplasma meliae’ through Genome Characterization

Ca. Phytoplasma meliae
Abstract
‘Candidatus Phytoplasma meliae’ is a pathogen associated with chinaberry yellowing disease, which has become a major phytosanitary problem for chinaberry forestry production in Argentina. Despite its economic impact, no genome information of this phytoplasma has been published, which has hindered its characterization at the genomic level. In this study, we used a metagenomics approach to analyze the draft genome of the ‘Ca. P. meliae’ strain ChTYXIII. The draft assembly consisted of twenty-one c

Towards the completion of Koch’s postulates for the citrus huanglongbing bacterium, Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus

Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
Abstract Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (Las) is one of the causal agents of huanglongbing (HLB), the most devastating disease of citrus worldwide. Due to the intracellular lifestyle and significant genome reduction, culturing Las in vitro has proven to be extremely challenging. In this study, we optimized growth conditions and developed a semi-selective medium based on the results of nutritional and antibiotic screening assays. Using these optimized conditions, we were able to

Members of the class Candidatus Ordosarchaeia imply an alternative evolutionary scenario from methanogens to haloarchaea

Abstract
Abstract The origin of methanogenesis can be traced to the common ancestor of non-DPANN archaea, whereas haloarchaea (or Halobacteria) are believed to have evolved from a methanogenic ancestor through multiple evolutionary events. However, due to the accelerated evolution and compositional bias of proteins adapting to hypersaline habitats, Halobacteria exhibit substantial evolutionary divergence from methanogens, and the identification of the closest methanogen (either Methanonatr

Candidatus Nitrosocosmicus members are the dominant archaea associated with pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) and ginseng (Panax ginseng C.A. Mey.) plants rhizospheres

Names
Ca. Nitrosocosmicus
Abstract
Background: Although archaea are widespread in terrestrial environments, little is known about the selection forces that shape their composition, functions, survival, and proliferation strategies in the rhizosphere. The ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA), which are abundant in soil environments, catalyze the first step of nitrification and have the potential to influence plant growth and development significantly. Results: Based on archaeal 16S rRNA and amoA gene (encoding the ammonia monooxygenase

'Candidatus Phytoplasma mali' SAP11-Like protein modulates expression of genes involved in metabolic pathways, photosynthesis, and defense in Nicotiana occidentalis leaves

Citation

Names
Ca. Phytoplasma mali
Abstract
Abstract Background: 'Candidatus Phytoplasma mali', the causal agent of apple proliferation disease, exerts influence on its host plant through various effector proteins, including SAP11CaPm which interacts with different TCP transcription factors. This study examines the transcriptional response of the plant upon early expression of SAP11CaPm. For that purpose, leaves of Nicotiana occidentalis H.-M. Wheeler were Agrobacterium-infiltrated to induce transient expression of SAP11CaPm and c

Tissue-associated and vertically transmitted bacterial symbiont in the coral Pocillopora acuta

Abstract
Abstract Coral microhabitats are colonized by a myriad of microorganisms, including diverse bacteria which are essential for host functioning and survival. However, the location, transmission, and functions of individual bacterial species living inside the coral tissues remain poorly studied. Here, we show that a previously undescribed bacterial symbiont of the coral Pocillopora acuta forms cell-associated microbial aggregates (CAMAs) within the mesenterial filaments. CAMAs were f

The best of both worlds: a proposal for further integration of Candidatus names into the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes

Abstract
The naming of prokaryotes is governed by the International Code of Nomenclature of Prokaryotes (ICNP) and partially by the International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi and Plants (ICN). Such codes must be able to determine names of taxa in a universal and unambiguous manner, thus serving as a common language across different fields and activities. This unity is undermined when a new code of nomenclature emerges that overlaps in scope with an established, time-tested code and uses the same
