Pathotypes of Synchytrium endobioticum in Turkey

In Turkey, Synchytrium endobioticum (EPPO A2 List) was first found in 2003 (EPPO RS 2005/034) and was later found in 3 provinces in Central Anatolia Region and 2 provinces in the Black Sea Region. Different pathotypes occurs, some have been identified as European pathotypes 1(D1), 6(O1), 18(T1), and one new pathotype has been named 38(Nev). In order to characterize other pathotypes present in Turkey, a set of potato varieties used in Ukraine was used to test 14 isolates collected from Nevşehir, Niğde and Kayseri. None of the isolates belonged to the Ukrainian pathotypes but the 14 isolates could be assigned to 7 pathotypes differentiated by Ukrainian potato varieties.
