RxLR48 contributes to Phytophthora capsici virulence. a Relative expression levels of RxLR48 in P. capsici transformants. Total RNA was isolated and transcript levels of RxLR48 were determined by qRT–PCR with P. capsici tubulin gene as a pathogen reference. T108 was a non-silenced transformant carrying the same silencing construct. (**, P < 0.01 compared with LT263, Dunnett’s test). b, c Inoculation of RxLR48-silenced transformants. Leaves of Nicotiana benthamiana were inoculated with the non-silenced transformant T108 (control) and RxLR48-silenced transformants T12 and T129. Photographs (b) were taken under UV light and lesion diameters were measured at 36 hpi. The shown data (c) are expressed as the mean + SD of three replicates. Asterisks indicate significant differences (**, P < 0.01 compared with T108, Dunnett’s test)
