From: Powerful regulatory systems and post-transcriptional gene silencing resist increases in cellulose content in cell walls of barley

Transgenic T 1 35S:HvCesA4 Transgene/Endogenous ratio Endogenous HvCesA4 Endogenous HvCesA7 Endogenous HvCesA8
dwarf 82% 25% 36% 32%
normal 215% 115% 95% 112%
Transgenic T 1 35S:HvCesA8 Transgene/Endogenous ratio Endogenous HvCesA4 Endogenous HvCesA7 Endogenous HvCesA8
stunted 79% 6% 7% 4%
brittle node 644% 44% 42% 14%

  1. Values are calculated as [(T/E)*100] to determine the ratio of transgene transcript levels to its corresponding endogenous gene expressed in control plants, where T = Average gene levels in transgenic plants and E = Average corresponding endogenous gene level in control plants. For endogenous genes, percentage expression in transgenic cf. control plants were calculated.
