Figure 6

(a) Graph showing the reduction in percentages of inoculations resulting in P. infestans lesions in plants expressing TRV–PP1c3′ or TRV–PP1c5′, compared with a TRV–GFP control. Error bars are s.e. and the graph represents the combined data from six biological replicates (n=50 per construct). Letters on the graph denote statistically significant differences (ANOVA, P≤0.009). (b) Graph showing the reduction in the average numbers of sporangia per ml recovered from infected leaves of plants expressing TRV–PP1c3′ or TRV–PP1c5′, compared with the TRV–GFP control plants. Error bars are s.e. and the graph represents the combined data from four biological replicates (n=32 per construct). Letters on the graph denote statistically significant differences (ANOVA, P<0.001). (c) Example leaves showing P. infestans lesion development on control and TRV–PP1c3′ or TRV–PP1c5′ plants.
