Phenotypes of bypass transgenics when grown in elevated or reduced CO2 environment. a In elevated CO2 conditions (1500 ppm), bypass plants have no detectable growth advantage over WT plants. b, c At 5 weeks of age, bypass transgenics grown in high CO2 showed no significant height or leaf number advantage over WT (dark red bars). This is in contrast with the significant advantage (marked by asterisk) in height and leaf number observed in bypass transgenics in ambient CO2 conditions (light gray bars). d When plants are grown in ambient CO2 and exposed to low CO2 conditions (100 ppm) for 5 h, WT show a shriveling response, which is not shown by the bypass transgenics. 10 ≤ n ≤ 12, error bars standard error
