1  AAD 2013AY result is based on 2.05 fb${}^{-1}$ of ${{\mathit p}}{{\mathit p}}$ data at $\sqrt {s }$ = 7 TeV, the result is obtained by reconstructing ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ events in the lepton + jets final state, where ${{\mathit b}}$-jet charges are tagged by the jet-charge algorithm. This measurement excludes the charge $-4$/3 assignment to the top quark at more than 8 standard deviations.
2  ABAZOV 2014D result is based on 5.3 fb${}^{-1}$ of ${{\mathit p}}{{\overline{\mathit p}}}$ data at $\sqrt {s }$=1.96 TeV. The electric charge of system in ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ candidate events is measured from the charges of the leptons from ${{\mathit W}}$ decay and in ${{\mathit b}}$ jets. Under the assumption that the system consists of the sum of the top quark and the charge $-4$/3 quark ${{\mathit b}^{\,'}}$(-4/3) of the same mass, the top quark fraction is found to be ${{\mathit f}}$ = $0.88$ $\pm0.13$ (stat)$\pm0.11$ (syst), or the upper bound for the ${{\mathit b}^{\,'}}$(-4/3) contamination of 1 $−$ ${{\mathit f}}$ $<$ 0.46 (95$\%$ CL).
3  AALTONEN 2013J excludes the charge $-4$/3 assignment to the top quark at 99$\%$ CL, using 5.6 fb${}^{-1}$ of data in ${{\mathit p}}{{\overline{\mathit p}}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV. Result is obtained by reconstructing ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ events in the lepton + jets final state, where ${{\mathit b}}$-jet charges are tagged by the jet-charge algorithm.
4  AALTONEN 2010S excludes the charge $-4$/3 assignment for the top quark [CHANG 1999 ] at 95$\%$CL, using 2.7 fb${}^{-1}$ of data in ${{\mathit p}}{{\overline{\mathit p}}}$ collisions at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV. Result is obtained by reconstructing ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ events in the lepton + jets final state, where ${{\mathit b}}$-jet charges are tagged by the SLT (soft lepton tag) algorithm.
5  ABAZOV 2007C reports an upper limit $\rho <$ 0.80 (90$\%$ CL) on the fraction $\rho $ of exotic quark pairs ${{\mathit Q}}{{\overline{\mathit Q}}}$ with electric charge $\vert $q$\vert $ = 4e/3 in ${{\mathit t}}{{\overline{\mathit t}}}$ candidate events with high $p_T$ lepton, missing $\mathit E_{T}$ and ${}\geq{}$4 jets. The result is obtained by measuring the fraction of events in which the quark pair decays into ${{\mathit W}^{-}}$ + ${{\mathit b}}$ and ${{\mathit W}^{+}}$ + ${{\overline{\mathit b}}}$, where ${{\mathit b}}$ and ${{\overline{\mathit b}}}$ jets are discriminated by using the charge and momenta of tracks within the jet cones. The maximum CL at which the model of CHANG 1999 can be excluded is 92$\%$. Based on 370 pb${}^{-1}$ of data at $\sqrt {s }$ = 1.96 TeV.
