  1. wTranscript levels in different tissues of cv. Harvest were expressed relative to that of 4CL1 in flag leaf, which was arbitrarily set to value of 1
  2. xData are means of 2 to 3 independent biological replicates ± SE
  3. yMeans followed by different letters within each gene show statistically significant difference at P < 0.05
  4. zGenes highly expressed specifically in the leaf tissues
  5. FB flag leaf blade, FS flag leaf sheath, PE peduncle, IN-1 the first internode, IN-2&3 the second and third internode, IN-4 the fourth internode (see the Methods section for numerical designation of internodes)
