First report of `Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris' associated with oilseed rape phyllody in Poland
Plant Disease 95 (11), 1475-1475
Abstract: During 2009, winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus) plants grown in Poland were observed with symptoms of floral virescence, phyllody, as well as auxiliary bud proliferation, reduced leaves, and malformation of siliques. DNA was extracted from symptomatic plants and analyzed by PCR using phytoplasma specific primers. The presence of a phytoplasma was demonstrated in the symptomatic plants and the PCR product was cloned and sequenced. Sequence analysis showed the presence of a phytoplasma belonging to the subgroup 16SrI-B (´Candidatus Phytoplasma asteris'-related).
