Table 2 A comparison of thiol compounds and their effect on transient gene expression of GUSPlus.

From: A high-throughput transient gene expression system for switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) seedlings

Treatment* GUS-positive seedlings
  Total, n* Mean ± SE† %
H2O, AS 21 7.0 ± 0.6b 14.0
H2O, cysteine, AS 26 8.7 ± 2.3b 17.3
H2O, DTT, AS 29 9.7 ± 2.2b 19.3
H2O, cysteine, DTT, AS 47 15.7 ± 1.9a 31.3
  1. AS = acetosyringone; DTT = dithiothreitol.
  2. All of the treatments included 1 minute of sonication.
  3. *Three replicates of 50 seedlings per replicate were tested in each treatment.
  4. †Means followed by the same letter (a, b, c) were not significantly different at the 5% level as determined by The Tukey multiple comparison test.
