Production of Volatile Moth Sex Pheromones in Transgenic Nicotiana benthamiana Plants

Figure 4

Comparative study between SxPv1.0 T3 and SxPv1.2 T1 plants. (a) Pheromone content in leaf samples from young plants of WT, SxPv1.0 and SxPv1.2 lines. (b) Pheromone content in leaf samples from adult plants of WT, SxPv1.0 and SxPv1.2 lines. (c) Pheromone content in root samples from adult plants of WT, SxPv1.0 and SxPv1.2 lines. The diameter of each dot corresponds to the plant size of each sample. Empty circles correspond to WT plants. (d) Comparative physiological development in SxPv1.0 5_1_7_X (T3), SxPv1.2 4_X (T1), and WT Nicotiana benthamiana plants at the young and adult stage. Pictures were taken from representative individuals at young (4 weeks after transplant) and adult (7 weeks after transplant) stages.
