Phomopsis azadirachtae Sateesh, Bhat and Devaki is the causal agent of die-back disease of neem. Six isolates of P. azadirachtae collected from different geog. regions of Tamilnadu were subjected to SDS-PAGE to study the variation among the isolates. Mycelial sol. proteins extd. from the six isolates exhibited marked variations in their electrophoretic protein profile. A few bands were common to all the isolates and each isolate also had a few specific bands. Sol. proteins were resolved into 42 bands of different mol. wts. Similarity index obtained ranged from 29.63% to 59.26%. Above findings indicate the existence of variability in P. azadirachtae isolates and its heterogeneous nature, revealing the genetic diversity of the pathogen. [on SciFinder(R)]
