  1. Height and biomass were determined on fully senesced primary inflorescence stems (free of rosette leaves, axillary inflorescences, and siliques). The data represent the average value of 16 biological repeats for the mutants and 32 biological repeats for the wild-type (WT) (± SD). The cell wall residue (CWR) (expressed as % dry weight) was determined gravimetrically after a sequential extraction (mutants, n = 8; wild-type, n = 16). Decreases compared to the wild-type are in italics. * p < 0.001 (Dunnett-Hsu adjusted t-test).
