Relative expression of transcription factor encoding genes in 35S:TM8 plants. Relative expression of different genes in wild-type (white) and TM8:SRDX over-expressing (grey) tissues: sepals (SE), petals (PE), stamens (ST), ovaries (OV), flower peduncles (FP), leaf (L), and fruits at different stages of development [small green (SG), mature green (G), breaker (B) and red (R)]. Panels from A to M show the expression of MADS-box transcription factor encoding genes and each panel incorporates the name of the examined gene. Panels from N to O show the expression of genes coding for different Aux/IAA proteins whose specific name is reported in its dedicated panel. Finally, panel Q, R and S show the expression of the JOINTLESS (J), OVATE (OV) and ACO1 genes, respectively. Expression data (means of the normalized expression) were obtained by real-time PCR analyses. Values represent the mean of three different transgenic lines and two untransformed plants. Bars are the standard deviations from the means. Asterisks indicate values significantly different by Student’s t test from the control (P <0.05).
