  • a Data are normalized to the total mass of seed extracted. The mole percentages of sugars were calculated from total ion counts between m/z 50 and m/z 350 on the basis of response factors from authentic sugar standards.

  • b Values are the mean ±sd of three (wild type) or four (myb61-1) samples; mg/100 mg seed.

  • Rha, rhamnose; Ara, arabinose; Xyl, xylose; Man, mannose; Gal, galactose; Glu, glucose; Fuc, fucose; GalA, galacturonic acid; tr, trace.
