Fluorescence microscopy of monocots and legumes agroinoculated with FECT40/GFP/p19. (a) Maize leaf infection. For all grasses tested, occasional areas of scattered fluorescent cells were seen more commonly in FECT40/GFP/p19 agroinoculated leaves than in p19 agroinoculated or noninoculated leaves, but such cells were rare nonetheless. (b) Medicago trunculata leaf infection. Scattered fluorescent cells were common and FECT40/GFP/p19-infected tissue was easily distinguishable from p19-inoculated control leaves under fluorescent microscopy for both M. trunculata and lentils.
