  1. N/D no detectable expression, D detectable expression
  2. aGene expression of S8A serine protease genes was determined by RT-qPCR during the interaction of C. rosea with B. cinerea (Cr-Bc), C. rosea with F. graminearum (Cr-Fg) and C. rosea with itself (Cr-Cr, control). Relative expression is calculated as the ratio between the target gene and tubulin using the 2–ΔΔCT method. Different letters indicate significant differences (P ≤ 0.05) between treatments for each gene as determined by the Fisher’s least significant difference (LSD) test. The statistical analysis was performed on a minimum of three biological replicates
