USING A RIBOSOMAL PROBE FOR THE DETECTION OF THE PHYTOPLASMA ASSOCIATED WITH ´BUNCHY TOP SYMPTOM OF PAPAYA´ (BTS) IN PLANT AND INSECT HOST/ USO DE UNA SONDA RIBOSOMAL PARA LA DETECCIÓN DE FITOPLASMA ASOCIADO CON LA ENFERMEDAD DEL SÍNTOMA DEL COGOLLO ARREPOLLADO (BTS) EN PLANTAS E INSECTOS HOSPEDANTES

Resumen en español Recientemente, el grupo fitoplásmico 16SrII, Candidatus Phytoplasma aurantifolia fue asociado con la enfermedad similar al cogollo arrepollado, Bunchy Top disease (BTD) en el Este de Cuba. El ADN total de más de 200 muestras de plantas e insectos se muestreó durante el 2005, y las que resultaron infectadas por el fitoplasma BTD, fueron evaluadas mediante un ensayo de hibridación de ácidos nucleicos no radioactiva (nrNAH). Los productos de PCR correspondientes al ARN (mas) ribosomal 16S de muestras seleccionadas se purificaron, marcaron con fosfatasa alcalina y se utilizaron como sonda para la detección de este fitoplasma mediante el sistema de marcaje directo con fosfatasa alcalina y detección quimioluminiscente (AlkPhos, Amersham Life Science, UK). El ensayo nrNAH detectó el fitoplasma BTD tanto en plantas de fruta bomba como en Empoasca papayae Oman. La sonda arrojó señales de hibridación al reaccionar con los controles de referencia y las muestras infectadas con el fitoplasma BTD. El ensayo nrNAH se considera una valiosa herramienta diagnóstica para los programas de vigilancia fitosanitaria, certificación de semilla y mejoramiento genético, y una vía para desarrollar futuros ensayos específicos. Resumen en inglés Recently, a phytoplasma of the 16SrII, Candidatus Phytoplasma aurantifolia group was associated with Bunchy Top disease (BTD) in eastern Cuba. Total DNA from more than 200 plant and insect leaf samples surveyed during 2005 and infected by the 16SrII phytoplasma was indexed by a non-radioactive nucleic acid hybridization assay (nrNAH). Phytoplasma 16S rDNA PCR products of selected samples were purified, labeled with alakaline phosphatase and used as a probe for the detecti (mas) on of such phytoplasma by the system of direct alkaline phosphatase labelling and chemiluminiscent detection (AlkPhos, Amersham LIFE SCIENCE, UK). The nrNAH assay detected the BTD phytoplasma in both papaya plants and Empoasca papayae Oman. The probe yielded hybridization signals reacting with reference controls and samples infected with the BTD phytoplasma. The nrNAH is considered a valuable diagnostic tool for the national phytosanitary surveillance, seed certification and breeding programs and a pathway to develop further specific assays.

Estimated Future Production of Desalinated Seawater in the MENA Countries and Consequences for the Recipients

Bashitialshaaer, Raed; Persson, Kenneth M; Larson, Magnus

Seawater desalination constitutes an important source for water supply to the population bordering the Arabian Gulf, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Red Sea. Desalination has advantages and disadvantages which may depend on the region, location, technology, impact and amount of fresh water production...

Environmental Assessment of Brine Discharge Including Wastewater Collection in the Arabian Gulf

Bashitialshaaer, Raed; Flyborg, Lena; Persson, Kenneth M

The environmental effects of brine discharge in the Arabian/Persian Gulf have been assessed. The Arabic Gulf is a wide and shallow system having a horizontal shear dominance. The management choice of mixing brine with wastewater to reduce the salt content in the discharge has also been considered. A...
