Sequences of PCR primers used to compare the gene expression profiles of trypsin-like and chymotrypsin-like serine proteases, alkaline phosphatases, aminopeptidases, and cadherin-like protein by RT-PCR between Cry1Ab-susceptible and resistant strains of European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis). The information provided represents the sequences of forward and reverse PCR primers, and expected size of PCR product for each of 41 candidate genes.
