Abstract

The present study reports the development and evaluation of a hemi-nested polymerase chain reaction (hnPCR) assay for the efficient detection of `Candidatus Liberibacter' infecting citrus plants. A set of new primers was designed by alignment of nucleotide sequences of the beta-operon (rp1KAJL-rpoBC) ribosomal protein genes from all the known `Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus' isolates reported in Genbank. Hemi-nested PCR reaction components and thermal cycling parameters were optimized and reaction conditions were standardized. Sequencing of the PCR products from hemi nested-PCR reactions confirmed the specificity of new primer pairs for `Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus'. The reliability and sensitivity of hnPCR was evaluated by comparing it to real-time PCR.
