Table I.

Global and pairwise survivorship analysis of hornworm larvae that fed on untransformed wild-type N. attenuata plants (WT), two homozygous T3 independently transformed lines transformed with a construct containing a 175-bp pi gene fragment in an antisense orientation (AS—— and AS—), or with an empty vector construct (C); untransformed plants of the Arizona (A) genotype; and A plants transformed with a construct containing the full-length pi gene in a sense orientation (S+ and S++), or with an empty vector construct (AC)
