Homozygous199.5a
  • Heterozygous plants for pip5k4 allele were allowed to self-fertilize and the progeny was genotyped. The observed segregation was compared with the expected Mendelian segregation (1:2:1). Statistical significance was determined by Pearson's χ2 test.

  • a Significantly different from segregation ratio 1:2:1 (P < 0.001; 2 degrees of freedom).
