  • Values are means ± se, and errors are standard error of the mean (n = 20 to 33). Differences between the mutants and the corresponding wild-type plants are significant at the 0.05 > P > 0.01 level (*) or the P < 0.01 level (**). rax1-3 and rax3-1 are in the Col-0 background, whereas rax2-1 is in the Ws background. For the double and triple mutants, a mixed Col-0 Ws background was used as a control.
