functional characterization of lotp from liberibacter asiaticus.liberibacter asiaticus is an unculturable parasitic bacterium of the alphaproteobacteria group hosted by both citrus plants and a psyllid insect vector (diaphorina citri). in the citrus tree, the bacteria thrive only inside the phloem, causing a systemically incurable and deadly plant disease named citrus greening or huanglongbing. currently, all commercial citrus cultivars in production are susceptible to l. asiaticus, representing a serious threat to the citrus industry worldwide. the technica ...201728378385
a small wolbachia protein directly represses phage lytic cycle genes in "candidatus liberibacter asiaticus" within psyllids.huanglongbing (hlb) is a severe disease of citrus caused by an uncultured alphaproteobacterium "candidatus liberibacter asiaticus" and transmitted by asian citrus psyllids (diaphorina citri). two prophage genomes, sc1 and sc2, integrated in "ca. liberibacter asiaticus" strain uf506 were described previously, and very similar prophages are found resident in the majority of "ca. liberibacter asiaticus" strains described worldwide. the sc1 lytic cycle is marked by upregulation of prophage late gene ...201728608866
ldtr is a master regulator of gene expression in liberibacter asiaticus.huanglongbing or citrus greening disease is causing devastation to the citrus industry. liberibacter asiaticus, an obligate intracellular pathogen of citrus, is one the causative agents of the disease. most of the knowledge about this bacterium has been deduced from the in silico exploration of its genomic sequence. l. asiaticus differentially expresses genes during its transmission from the psyllid vector, diaphorina citri, to the plant. however, the regulatory mechanisms for the adaptation of ...201728503858
