Average Length of Wild-Type, AtADF1-O, and AtADF-U Root Hairs

  • a Because the percentage of abnormal root hairs on individual AtADF1-O and AtADF-U plants was quite variable (see Discussion), transgenic plants with a high percentage (>70%) of affected root hairs were selected for this analysis. The 95% confidence interval is given in parentheses.
