Figure 7.

Real-time PCR analysis of the relative expression levels of the Oe-Chi I and Oe-PRp27 genes in relation to biotic and mechanical stress. RNA was isolated from drupes of the ‘Leccino’ cultivar. The graph displays the relative quantity (RQ) for each target gene (grey bars), shown on a linear scale relative to the calibrator (control drupes; white bars). Asterisks indicate significant difference compared to control (p < 0.01). a) The expression level of Oe-Chi I in drupes with oviposition punctures or larval feeding tunnels. b) The expression level of Oe-PRp27 I in drupes with oviposition punctures or larval feeding tunnels. c) A time-course of the expression level of Oe-Chi I in drupes following mechanical damage, at 0 (control), 24 and 48 h following treatment (hpt). d) A time-course of the expression level of Oe-PRp27 I in drupes at 0 (control), 24 and 48 h following treatment (hpt)
