Time course of <i>PKS8-1</i> cluster gene expression in the overexpression strain of the <i>aflR</i>-like gene during disease development in banana.

<p><b>A.</b> Cluster gene expression in the overexpressor and in a vector-transformed control relative to expression in conidia (set to 1) of the respective strains. Black bar = overexpressor strain #4 (OX); hatched bar = vector control #2 (VC). <b>B.</b> Same data as in 8A, but cluster gene expression of the overexpressor is shown relative to expression in the vector-control strain (set to 1). Cluster genes assayed are those shown in <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0212229#pone.0212229.g004" target="_blank">Fig 4</a>. Tissue was harvested and assayed weekly starting at 2 weeks post inoculation through 9 weeks. Results are shown as a bar graph in log scale. Error bars indicate standard error from three biological replicates. ND = not detected; W = week.</p>
