  1. Expression levels were normalized to TcACP1 (column 3 and 4). Fold changes were calculated as a ratio of expression levels induced by TcLEC2 relative to expression levels in tissues transformed with the vector control lacking TcLEC2 and are the mean of three biological replicates (n = 3, mean ± SE). Significance was established by t-test with p-value cut-off of 0.05.
