From: Role of the major antigenic membrane protein in phytoplasma transmission by two insect vector species

Treatment Number of microinjected insects Infection efficiency Inoculation efficiency

CYfAmp64-224 170 98.9 % (89) 54.5 %a (66)
Antibody A416 186 100 % (72) 26.7 %b (45)
CYfAmp64-224 + Antibody A416 85 95.2 % (62) 38.6 %ab (44)

  1. Infection and inoculation efficiencies of Euscelidius variegatus following abdominal microinjection with chrysanthemum yellows phytoplasma (CYP) suspension in the presence and absence of proteins. Infection efficiency: percentage of CYP-infected insects (PCR positive) following microinjection. Inoculation efficiency: percentage of CYP PCR positive plants following inoculation with CYP-infected insects. Within columns, figures followed by different letters differ significantly (Chi square test). Sample sizes in parenthesis
