  14. Three PCR primer pairs, based on the cytokinins (etz) or IAA biosynthetic genes, were used for detecting Erwinia herbicola pv. gypsophilae in Gypsophila paniculata plants. The primers were specific to all gall-forming E. herbicola strains and distinguished them from saprophytic strains associated with gypsophila plants or from other gall-forming bacteria. In pure culture of the pathogen, less than... more..
