Root proteome expression profile of control and Foc1 ( F. oxysporum f.sp. ciceri Race1) infected chickpea genotypes JG62 (A), WR315 (B). Root proteins (250 μg) of control (Jc) and infected JG62 extracted at different time intervals of 48 h, 72 h, 96 h (J48, J72, J96) post infection (A). Root proteins (250 μg) of control (Wc) and infected WR315 extracted at different time intervals 48 h, 72 h, 96 h (W48, W72, W96) post infection (B). Total proteins separated in first dimension (IEF,11 cm IPG strip, 3-10 NL) followed by second dimension in 12% SDS-PAGE, stained with coomassie brilliant blue R-250. Master gel generated by PD Quest (C). Identified spots are encircled and the number corresponds to the spot number mentioned in Additional file 5.
