Table 3 In vitro germination in dark: relative dry mass distribution for grain, radicle and coleoptile from SBE RNAi 4.1 and control lines 12 days after germination (average values of 10 grains from each line)

From: Concerted suppression of all starch branching enzyme genes in barley produces amylose-only starch granules
