Table 3 Transmission of p5cr mutant alleles by self-pollination and in reciprocal crosses with wildtype plants

From: Requirement of proline synthesis during Arabidopsis reproductive development

Genotype pollen donor1 Genotype pollen recipient1 Offspring with p5crallele [% ±SD2] Expected frequency [%] Seedlings analysed

  1. Transmission of the p5cr mutant alleles was determined by kanamycin resistance of the progeny after selfing (first two rows) or crossing of various parental genotypes.
  2. 1 D: P5CR wildtype allele; d1: p5cr-1 mutant allele; d2: p5cr-2 mutant allele.
  3. 2 SD was calculated from five batches of seeds from individual parent plants.
  4. * indicates significant difference from the expected value (p<0.05 by Χ2 test with 1 degree of freedom).
