Abstract

Specifically primed polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis was used for direct detection and identification of Rhizoctonia solani isolates belonging to AG 1 sub-groups (IA, IB, and IC) and AG 2 subgroups (2-1 and 2-2). A rapid DNA extraction method with a solution of sodium hydroxide was conducted to extract PCR templates. PCR-specific primer sets for each group were designed from sequences in the regions of the 28S ribosomal DNA of this fungus. The results of specifically primed PCR analysis showed that AG 1-IA, AG 1-IB, AG 1-IC, AG 2-1, and AG 2-2 primers sets contributed detection from the same AG isolates and could escape detection from different AG isolates at a high level of frequency. In this experiment, we suggested that our synthesized primer sets might provide a method for the direct detection and identification of AGs of R. solani.
