Table 1 Morphometric analysis of fully-grown untransformed (X), PKVS and PKVAS plants.

From: Modification of tobacco plant development by sense and antisense expression of the tomato viroid-induced AGC VIIIa protein kinase PKV suggests involvement in gibberellin signaling

  1. aValues are significantly different compared to the X control (P < 0.05) as measured using the
  2. unpaired t test. Six plants of each line were used for the analysis with three lines per construct.
  3. Total height and number of internodes was measured from the base of the plant to the base of the inflorescence when all of the flowers were developed.
