E-MTAB-5063 - Transcription profiling by high throughput sequencing of leaves of inbred line B73 infested with corn leaf aphids
Released on 29 September 2015, last updated on 22 August 2016
As a response to insect attack, maize (Zea mays) has inducible defenses that involve large changes in gene expression and metabolism. Piercing/sucking insects such as corn leaf aphids (Rhopalosiphum maidis) cause direct damage by acquiring phloem nutrients as well as indirect damage through the transmission of plant viruses. To elucidate the metabolic processes and gene expression changes involved in maize responses to aphid attack, leaves of inbred line B73 were infested with R. maidis for two to 96 hours.
