  • Quantification of ABA content (expressed as ng ABA/g dry weight) in dry seeds of Sal, Sal-RNAi8-4, UC, UC+Sal-NCED4, DS, MIS1, MIS2, and STOP1 in the Sal-RNAi8-4 and UC+Sal-NCED4 seeds imbibed at 35°C for 24 h and in the Sal, Sal-RNAi8-4, UC, and UC+Sal-NCED4 seeds imbibed at 35°C for 48 h. Values are means ± se (n = 3). Missing values were not measured.
