"Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" (Lso) is an emergent pathogen of carrots in Europe and solanaceous plants in North and Central America and New Zealand. This bacterium is closely related to other pathogenic Candidatus Liberibacter spp., all vectored by psyllids. In order to understand the molecular interaction of this pathogen and its psyllid vector, Bactericera cockerelli, Illumina sequencing of psyllid harboring Lso was performed to determine if this approach could be used to assess the ...[more]
Project description:We sequenced mRNA from the bacterial pathogen 'Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum" during its association with the psyllid vector Bactericera cockerelli. Overall design: Total RNA was purified from psyllids, insect and bacterial rRNAs were depleted. PolyA RNA was purified using Dynabeads. PolyA purified RNA and depleted RNA were sequenced.

Project description:In this study we compare the transcriptome response of two potato varieties Atlantic and NY138 to the infection by Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum. Four weeks old potato plant grown in growth chamber were infested with potato psyllid to transmit the pathogen Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum. Three weeks after infestation leaf samples were collected for RNA extraction and transcriptome analysis. This is the first transcriptome study on this potato disease. Overall design: Two factorial design experiment with two potato varieites Atlantic and NY138, and two treatment: no infection compared to infection by Candidatus liberibacter solanacearum
Project description:This study evaluated the transcriptional reprogramming of a susceptible genotype (Pera sweet orange) challenged with the pathogenic bacteria Candidatus Liberibacter americanus (CaLam), using a customized 385K microarray containing about 32,000 unigene transcripts. For the microarray experiment were used symptomatic leaves from two Pera sweet orange plants inoculated with either bark or bud pieces infected with Candidatus Liberibacter americanus and two non-infected control plants.
Project description:HLB is suggested to be caused by the phloem-limited fastidious prokaryotic α-proteobacterium “Candidatus Liberibacter spp.” Previous studies focused on the proteome and transcriptome analyses of citrus 5 to 35-week-after “Ca. L. spp.” inoculation. In this study, gene expression profiles was analyzed using mandarin of Citrus reticulate Blanco cv. jiaogan leaves after 2-year infection with “Ca. L. asiaticus”. The Affymetrix GeneChip® citrus genome were applied to study the molecular pathways mediated by “Ca. L. asiaticus” inoculated 3-year-old jiaogan seedlings. Each of them was graft-inoculated with one sweet orange scions with or without “Ca. L. asiaticus” in Dectember, 2009. RNA samples from three mandarin trees infected with 'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus' and three uninfected trees were used for affymatrix genochip
