Abstract

Witches’-broom disease of small-fruited acid lime (WBDL) is a severe disease caused by a mycoplasmalike organism (MLO) in the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates. The WBDL MLO was characterized by studying its genome size, the sequences of its 16S ribosomal DNA and the 16S-23S ribosomal DNA spacer region, and hybridization profiles obtained by using WBDL MLO-specific probes. The size of the WBDL MLO genome is 720 kbp. Genomic similarities with the MLOs of sunhemp, sesame, and alfalfa phyllodies were demonstrated, and we found that the WBDL MLO belongs to the sunhemp phyllody phylogenetic subgroup.
