From: Downregulation of GAUT12 in Populus deltoides by RNA silencing results in reduced recalcitrance, increased growth and reduced xylan and pectin in a woody biofuel feedstock

Figure 4

RNAi downregulation of P. delotides PdGAUT12.1 expression leads to improved saccharification. Glucose (A), xylose (B) and total sugar (C) release from controls and PdGAUT12.1-KD lines. Significance P values are expressed as *P < 0.05, **P < 0.001 calculated by statistical analysis using Statistica 5.0 with one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey’s multiple comparison test. n = 25 for wild-type P. deltoides, n = 10 to 15 for vector control and PdGAUT12.1-KD lines.
