  • a Free IAA values are given as the mean ±sd in micrograms per gram fresh weight of tissue. Samples were assayed in the triplicate unless otherwise noted.

  • b Student's t test was applied for statistical analysis. t values were determined between the free IAA level of the mutant and wild type. A t value of ≥2.776 would indicate a significant difference with a 95% confidence interval.

  • c ND, not determined.

  • d Assayed in duplicate.
