  • Percentages of each root hair class (defined in Preuss et al., 2006) were determined for the wild type, all four rhd4 alleles, the native promoter-cDNA complemented line, and the native promoter-EYFP-cDNA complemented line (n = 1152, 1720, 1529, 1365, 1482, 983, and 947 root hairs, respectively). Errors represent the sd of the average for each line.
