  • a Hypocotyl lengths in millimeters. The red light level was 31-37 μmol · m−2 · sec−1. Data for bot1-5, pom1-14, shy2-2, shy2-3, and pom1-15 were combined from two experiments. All phyB-1 shy seedlings were significantly shorter than phyB-1 seedlings (data not shown).

  • b t-test and P values calculated for comparison of phyB-1 shy hypocotyl lengths with corresponding PHYB shy hypocotyl lengths.
