From: Rapid, high efficiency virus-mediated mutant complementation and gene silencing in Antirrhinum

Developmental stage Orientation of insert P value†

  1. Fifty A. majus plants were inoculated at the first leaf stage with TRV carrying AmPDS in either sense or antisense orientation. *The number and percentage of plants showing bleaching in metamer 3 or metamer 6 leaves or in the inflorescence (> metamer 10). Fisher’s Exact Test probabilities that the effects of antisense and sense orientations are not different
