Strains were chosen to represent various species and pathovars within Xanthomonas. Signal at the expected size for each primer set (1) indicates the presence of the marker, while the absence of PCR signal at the expected size (0) is interpreted as the absence of the gene or allelic diversity and a suspected absence of motility. Absence of motility was confirmed by soft-agar motility test as illustrated in Figure 7.
