Candidatus Phytoplasma mali

Names Candidatus Phytoplasma mali
Accession numbers NC_011047
Background Candidatus Phytoplasma mali strain AT. Candidatus Phytoplasma mali strain AT was collected in Heidelberg, Germany from a symptomatic apple tree.The genome of Candidatus Phytoplasma mali strain AT is organized in one chromosome with a size of 602 kilobases and a GC content of 21%. Chromosome architecture of Ca. P. mali and related fruit tree pathogens are distinct from the other Mollicute genomes described so far. The low amount of potential mobile units and paralogs and the minimal common gene content shared with the other phytoplasma genomes characterize strain AT. Reduced metabolic pathways reflect the parasitic lifestyle and correspond to the low number of protein-encoding genes. Candidatus Phytoplasma mali strain AT will be used for comparative analysis with other phytoplasma and mycoplasma. (NCBI BioProject: bp_list[1])
