  • Each value represents the mean ± SD. *P < 0 .05, one-way ANOVA for all three genotypes; **P < 0.5, one-way ANOVA that bri1-5R1 is different from Ws-2 and bri1-5; ***P < 0.05, one-way ANOVA that bri1-5R1 and bri1-5 are different from Ws-2.

  • a P < 0.05, one-way ANOVA that Ws-2 and bak1-2 are not different, bri1-5 and bri1-5R1 bak1-2 are not different, and bri1-5R1 is different from all others.

  • b P < 0.05, one-way ANOVA that Ws-2 and bri1-5 are not different from each other, but all the rest are different.
