  • All the measurements were performed with the first five siliques on the 6-week-old plants. For the wild type and rhf1a and rhf2a single mutant plants, the samples were from five independent plants. For rhf1a rhf2a double mutants, the samples were from 25 independent plants. Mean ± sd is shown. Differences between values for the wild type and other single or double mutants were significant at the 0.05 level. Seed set: normally developed seeds per silique/total ovules per silique.
