The MonPol dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Monilinia polystroma detection by using qPCR. Monilinia polystroma is an ascomycete fungus belonging to Sclerotiniaceae family. It is one of the responsible for the brown rot blossom blight disease that infects many different types of stone fruit trees, such as apricots, cherries and peaches. M. polystroma is reported to cause rot on both pome and stone fruits. Recent studies, comparing isolates of M. fructigena collected in Japan and Europe, revealed that there were significant differences between isolates from the two regions in colony characteristics, stroma formation, growth rate, and conidial dimensions; as well as differences using the ITS region of ribosomal DNA. These studies suggested that the Japanese isolates were distinct enough from the European M. fructigena to be considered a separate species. Because no sexual form was observed, this species was named and described only in the asexual form as Monilia polystroma.
