Table 3 Polymorphisms in exon region of γ-TMT3 gene.

From: Genetic variation of γ-tocopherol methyltransferase gene contributes to elevated α-tocopherol content in soybean seeds

Cultivar name *1 *2 *3 *4 α-Tocopherol

Ichihime T T A G 1.99 ± 0.08 2008
Toyokomachi T C A G 4.84 ± 0.58 2008

  1. Ordinary cultivars (Williams 82, Ichihime, and Toyokomachi) and high α-tocopherol cultivars (KAS, Dobrogeance, Dobrudza 14 Pancevo) were used for analysis. Polymorphisms in exons are depicted by *1, *2, *3, *4 (see Figure.4B). α-Tocopherol concentration data are represented as mean ± SD of the values obtained from triplicate experiments. All plants were grown in Hokkaido University experimental farm.
