  1. Results represent an average ± the standard error of measurements taken 40 days after germination (WT - n = 18; AS5ox-1 and AS5ox-2 - n = 17) or at maturity (n = 10). Internode and leaf numbers were counted starting from the base of the plant.
  2. *Traits with a significant difference (p < 0.05) between both AS5ox lines and WT.
