Cell wall measurements on histological analysis of stem internode sections of transgenic TcEG1 and non-transgenic (NT-Perf) plants. Measurement of cell wall perimeters (a), cell wall thickness (b), and cell wall areas (c). Representative images of non-transgenic (d) and transgenic event Tc-6 (e) stem internodes stained with Pontamine Fast Scarlet. Bars represent mean value of replicates ± standard error. Bars represented by different letters are significantly different as calculated by LSD (p ≤ 0.05). Scale bar represents 100 µm
