The chimeric proteins and phenotypes of transgenic plants overexpressing chimeric gene. (a) Schematic diagram of the proteins encoded by the chimeric genes Be1 and Be2 and the sequences around the fusion sites. Arrowhead indicates the fusion sites in Be1 and Be2 proteins. (b) Leaves of transgenic plants overexpressing Xa3/Xa26 (MKbFMDJ2 line), Be1 (Be1-oe1, T0 generation), or Be2 (Be2-oe2, T0 generation) in the same genetic background. WT, wild-type Mudanjiang 8. (c) Formation of lesion mimics on the leaves cosegregated with the existence of Be2 in two T1 families at booting stage.
