Detection of Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus and five viruses in individual Asian citrus psyllid in China

Citation
Liu et al. (2024). Frontiers in Plant Science 15
Names
Ca. Liberibacter asiaticus
Abstract
IntroductionAsian citrus psyllid (ACP, Diaphorina citri) is an important transmission vector of “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus” (CLas), the causal agent of Huanglongbing (HLB), the most destructive citrus disease in the world. As there are currently no HLB-resistant rootstocks or varieties, the control of ACP is an important way to prevent HLB. Some viruses of insect vectors can be used as genetically engineered materials to control insect vectors.MethodsTo gain knowledge on viruses in ACP i

Candidatus Methanosphaera massiliense sp. nov., a methanogenic archaeal species found in a human fecal sample and prevalent in pigs and red kangaroos

Citation
Pilliol et al. (2024). Microbiology Spectrum 12 (2)
Names
Ca. Methanosphaera massiliense
Abstract
ABSTRACT Methanosphaera stadtmanae was the sole Methanosphaera representative to be cultured and detected by molecular methods in the human gut microbiota, further associated with digestive and respiratory diseases, leaving unknown the actual diversity of human-associated Methanosphaera species. Here, a novel Methanosphaera species, Candidatus Methanosphaera massilie

Draft genome sequence of novel Candidatus Ornithobacterium hominis carrying antimicrobial resistance genes in Egypt

Citation
Ahmed et al. (2024). BMC Microbiology 24 (1)
Names
Ca. Ornithobacterium hominis
Abstract
Abstract Background Candidatus Ornithobacterium hominis (O. hominis), which was identified in nasopharyngeal swabs from Egypt, has been associated with respiratory disorders in humans. O. hominis, a recently identified member of the Flavobacteriaceae family, belongs to the largest family within the Bacteroidetes phylum. This family includes hundreds of species and 90 genera, including major human pathogens such as Capnocytophaga canimorsus and Elizabethkingia meni

First detection of Candidatus Rickettsia tarasevichiae in Hyalomma marginatum ticks

Citation
Su et al. (2024). PLOS ONE 19 (2)
Names
Ca. Rickettsia tarasevichiae
Abstract
Ticks are important vectors of zoonotic diseases and play a major role in the circulation and transmission of many rickettsial species. The aim of this study was to investigate the carriage of Candidatus Rickettsia tarasevichiae (CRT) in a total of 1168 ticks collected in Inner Mongolia to elucidate the potential public health risk of this pathogen, provide a basis for infectious disease prevention, control and prediction and contribute diagnostic ideas for clinical diseases that present with fe

The functional decline of tomato plants infected by Candidatus Liberbacter solanacearum: an RNA-seq transcriptomic analysis

Citation
Chuan et al. (2024). Frontiers in Plant Science 15
Names
“Liberibacter solanacearum”
Abstract
IntroductionCandidatus Liberibacter solanacearum (CLso) is a regulated plant pathogen in European and some Asian countries, associated with severe diseases in economically important Apiaceous and Solanaceous crops, including potato, tomato, and carrot. Eleven haplotypes of CLso have been identified based on the difference in rRNA and conserved genes and host and pathogenicity. Although it is pathogenic to a wide range of plants, the mechanisms of plant response and functional decline of host pla
