Table 1 Effect of StWIPK silencing on spreading of PVYN-GFP to upper non-inoculated leaves

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

  1. dpi, days post inoculation with PVYN-GFP; WIPK silenced, six plants were agroinfiltrated with TRV construct for silencing WIPK gene and infected with PVYN-GFP; Empty vector, six plants were agroinfiltrated with empty TRV construct and infected with PVYN-GFP; Positive control, three plants were infected with PVYN-GFP at the same time as WIPK silenced and empty vector plants; nd, not determined at this time point
