From: Solanum venturii, a suitable model system for virus-induced gene silencing studies in potato reveals StMKK6 as an important player in plant immunity

Fig. 4

Silencing of StMKK6 is increasing the speed of viral spread. Cumulative percentage of systemically infected plants after TRV-based VIGS in relation to days post inoculation is shown. The results of two independent time series experiments are presented. In first experiment a total of five biological replicates (plants) was used for each treatment; StMKK6 silenced (blue solid line) and empty TRV vector agroinfiltrated (red solid line). In second experiment a total of six biological replicates were used for StMKK6 silenced group (blue dashed line) and four biological replicates for empty TRV vector agroinfiltrated plants (red dashed line). At each time point only two or three replicates were analysed
