Table 3 Bioassay using artificial infestation of A. micaceanus larvae on leaf explants of MD44 and transgenic plant L10-T 1 -10

From: Production of marker-free transgenic Jatropha curcas expressing hybrid Bacillus thuringiensis δ-endotoxin Cry1Ab/1Ac for resistance to larvae of tortrix moth (Archips micaceanus)

Plant Larvae upon infestation, number Larvae or pupa after infestation, number Mortality %1
Experiment I    
MD44 5 4 larvae + 1 pupa 0
L10-T1-10 5 1 pupa 80%
Experiment II    
MD44 5 5 larvae 0
L10-T1-10 5 0 100%
Experiment III    
MD44 5 5 larvae 0
L10-T1-10 5 0 100%
  1. 1Viability and mortality of insects were scored at 4 days after infestation.
