Table 5 Sugar contents in leaves

From: Over-expression of AtPAP2 in Camelina sativa leads to faster plant growth and higher seed yield

  WT Null-line 6 Null-line 14 Null-line 20 OE6 OE14 OE20
Hexose 1.78 ± 0.17a 1.32 ± 0.20b 1.54 ± 0.21b 1.39 ± 0.30b 1.45 ± 0.15b 1.10 ± 0.14bc 1.47 ± 0.48b
Sucrose 9.42 ± 1.36a 8.55 ± 0.61a 8.23 ± 2.00a 8.83 ± 0.80a 7.13 ± 1.12b 6.00 ± 0.33b 6.38 ± 1.42b
  1. Third and fourth fully mature leaves below the shoot tips were used for measurement. Sugar contents are expressed in μg sugar/mg DW (dry weight). Values are means ± SD (n = 4). Within each row, the values marked by different lower case letters are significantly different (p < 0.05). OE, overexpressed line; WT, wild type.
