Effect of RNAi induced gene silencing of five transcripts on the attachment of Pasteuria penetrans endospores (seen as hemispherical structures) sticking onto Meloidogyne incognita J2 s. (a). non-silenced freshwater control J2 s, (b). dsGFP treated control J2 s, (c to g) – J2 s in which specific transcripts were RNAi silenced. The transcript ID and the average number of attached endospores are provided along with the name of the silenced genes. Silencing of TR10010 and TR14793 caused significantly reduced endospore attachment as compared to controls, whereas silencing of TR16117 and TR10990 caused a significant increase in the endospore attachment. Silencing of TR26363 did not cause any change in endospore attachment as compared to controls. (scale bar: 20 μm)
