Enhanced biomass fixation of bypass transgenics. a Five-week-old representative bypass transgenics show improvement in growth over WT plants. b In 5-week-old plants, the above-ground dry weight increased by 62–118 % over WT in DEF2 transgenics and 65–75 % over WT in DEF2+TG1 transgenics (n = 3, Student’s t test, p value ≤0.05). c, d In 5-week-old plants, DEF2 and DEF2+TG1 transgenics grew about 5 inches taller than WT and formed about three more leaves per plant. By week 7, DEF2 and DEF2+TG1 transgenics grew about 8 inches taller than WT and had about five more leaves (n = 9) Error bars standard error
