Differentiation of Xanthomonas spp. Causing Bacterial Spot in Bulgaria Based on Biolog System.

Stoyanova M, Vancheva T, Moncheva P, Bogatzevska N - Int J Microbiol (2014)

Bottom Line: According to the current data, the species are four (X. euvesicatoria, X. vesicatoria, X. gardneri, and X. perforans) and cause similar symptoms in plants but possess different phenotypic properties.The results are compared to the data available in the literature in order to clarify the strong features of each species and distinguish the variable ones.Simple characteristics like amylase activity and utilization of cis-aconitate cannot serve alone for differentiation.

ABSTRACT
During the last 20 years, the causative agents of bacterial spot of tomato and pepper have been subjected to many studies and reclassifications. According to the current data, the species are four (X. euvesicatoria, X. vesicatoria, X. gardneri, and X. perforans) and cause similar symptoms in plants but possess different phenotypic properties. This work provides the full metabolic characteristics obtained by Biolog system of bacterial spot's xanthomonads based on a large selection of strains from different vegetable-producing regions of Bulgaria with accent on their major differentiating properties which could be used for species differentiation by metabolic profiles. The results are compared to the data available in the literature in order to clarify the strong features of each species and distinguish the variable ones. Simple characteristics like amylase activity and utilization of cis-aconitate cannot serve alone for differentiation.

fig2: Cluster analysis of the Bulgarian strains of genus Xanthomonas isolated from pepper, tomato, and weeds based on their differentiating properties.

Mentions: The Biolog metabolic data distributes the strains into three clusters at 70% similarity (Figure 1). The major cluster consists of only X. vesicatoria strains; the second big cluster is predominantly formed by strains of X. euvesicatoria; the smallest cluster comprises several miniclusters each of which is composed by the three Xanthomonas species (Figure 1). The strains separate in different clusters after analysis only on the basis of a selection of substrates which tend to be utilized differently by the three species (Table 3; Figure 2).
