Table 1 Phenotypes of transgenic tobacco lines expressing constructs containing the FT -like gene, FcFT1 , from Ficus carica L

From: Expression of FcFT1, a FLOWERING LOCUS T-like gene, is regulated by light and associated with inflorescence differentiation in fig (Ficus caricaL.)

Genotype n Day to flowering§ Leaf number# Plant height

  1. §Days from sowing to petal opening (± SE). #Number of leaves on 70-day-old plants (±SE). a, b, and c: significantly different from wild-type Samsun NN (SNN) at 70 days of age (Tukey-Kramer method, P < 0.01). All plants (T2 generation) were first grown on MS medium and then transferred to pots containing horticultural soil.
