Abstract

Summary: Cytoplasmic and cell-wall antigens and antisera were prepared from four Phytophthora species, and cell-wall antigens were prepared from two Pythium species. Immunodiffusion of the Pythium and Phytophthora cell-wall antigens showed that the two Pythium species did not cross-react with the Phytophthora cell-wall antisera. Immunodiffusion analysis of both cell-wall and cytoplasmic antigens of Phytophthora revealed some degree of specificity between species but not between A and A mating types in . Species specificity was improved by using indirect fluorescent antibody techniques and by the use of cross-absorbed sera. Agglutination and quantitative precipitation techniques did not significantly improve specificity.
