  • Expression has been normalized against three reference genes expressed in the same tissues (see Methods). Values shown are the mean of three biological replicates. Transformed data are shown in brackets. Pairwise comparisons were made using individual LSDs (data not shown). Asterisks indicate a significant difference in expression (P < 0.05) between the wild type and ga20ox1 ga20ox2 within that tissue for the specified target gene.
