Rice bacterial leaf blight (BLB) by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) is considered to be one of the major rice diseases steadily occurring around the rice-producing countries. In this study, we developed a recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) assay for the rapid, convenient and specific diagnosis of Xoo by targeting Xoo-specific transposase A gene. As the target gene can be amplified in 10 min without DNA extraction process and special equipment for temperature control, RPA for BLB can be useful and practical component for on-site diagnosis.
