Tissue specificity of OsMLA10-like, GA3oxidase1 and their respective miRNAs. Upper panels show the quantification by RT-qPCR of the mRNA levels of: A. OsMLA10-like and B. GA3oxidase1, in different caryopsis tissues (embryo, endosperm, pericarp). The values presented are an average of 3 biological replicates. Lower panels show the detection by northern blot of the corresponding miRNAs. Tissues were harvested during stage C (11–15 DPA). U6 was used as loading control for small RNA blots.
