Table 2 Frequency of ectopic meristems (eSMs)

From: Ectopic shoot meristem generation in monocotyledonous rpk1 mutants is linked to SAM loss and altered seedling morphology

  1. aOutcrosses to marker line KNAT2p:GUS, repeatedly selfed and with gl1/gl1 and non-KNAT2p:GUS background
  2. bOnly monocots vs. others were considered, seedlings with irregular cotyledons, e. g. unequally sized (= anisocots), were not separately counted
  3. cPercentage of all seedlings counted
  4. dIn three randomly selected batches tested, between 15-66 % of initial –SAM seedlings developed a late SAM
