Table 3 Silencing with pWSRi:floral homeotic gene constructs

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

Construct Plants Treated Results
pWSRi:SpPI 26 12 normal females
   14 males with mixed floral organs
pWSRi:SpAP3 18 7 normal females
   1 normal male
   10 males with mixed floral organs
  1. Spinach plants were biolistically inoculated with the indicated constructs. Plant sex was determined 6–8 weeks post-inoculation, and floral phenotypes visually scored for male or female characteristics.
