Table 2 Silencing of rbcS and transketolase

From: Development of a gene silencing DNA vector derived from a broad host range geminivirus

Treatmenta Plants silenced after treatment
a. Initial Trials  
   1. no DNA (mock) 0 of 6 plants
   2. pWSRi 0 of 6 plants
   3. pBCTV.R1 0 of 6 plants
   4. pWSRi + pBCTV.R1 0 of 6 plants
   5. pWSRi:rbcS. 6 of 6 plants
   6. pWSRi:rbcS + pBCTV.R1 6 of 6 plants
   7. pWSRi:transketolase 6 of 6 plants
   8. pWSRi:transketolase + pBCTV.R1 6 of 6 plants
b. Secondary Trials  
pWSRi:rbcS. 12 strong to moderate
  5 medium to light
  1 no response
pWSRi:transketolase 12 strong to moderate
  3 no response
  3 dead
  1. aTungsten particles were precipitated with the indicated DNAs and used to biolistically inoculate spinach plants. Plants were scored for leaf bleaching indicative of silencing beginning 6 weeks post-inoculation.
