Heteroduplex mobility assay (HMA) was used to determine if genetic variability existed amongst isolates of Australian grapevine yellows (AGY) and the Buckland Valley grapevine yellows (BVGY) phytoplasmas. Genetic variability was detected in 2 isolates of AGY phytoplasma from the same grapevine when they were compared with an AGY phytoplasma standard using HMA of the elongation factor Tu (tuf) gene.
