Autre titre : Diversité phénotypique de Xanthomonas sp. Mangiferaeindicae

Abstract : Carbohydrate utilization profiles by means of the API (Appareils et Procédés d'Identification) system and sensitivity to antibiotics and heavy metal salts of 68 #Xanthomonas sp. mangiferaeindicae# strains isolated in nine countries from mango (#Mangifera indica L.#) and other genera of the #Anacardiaceae# were examined to assess the variability of the taxon. The strains could be separated into 10 groups according to Ward clustering. Apigmented strains isolated from the pepper tree [syn. Brazilian pepper] (#Schinus terebenthifolius Raddi#) could not be clearly differentiated from most apigmented strains isolated from mango. Yellow-pigmented strains isolated from mango in Brazil and Reunion Island, apigmented strains isolated from mango in Brazil and from ambarella in the French West Indies, clustered in distinct groups. The results are consistent with those of other studies, based on isozyme analysis of esterase, phosphoglucomutase and superoxide dismutase, and hrp-RFLP analysis; they indicate the need for a comprehensive taxonomic evaluation of xanthomonads associated with #Anacardiaceae#.
