Relative expression of pectin metabolism gene transcripts in flax seedlings infected with Fusarium oxysporum. Changes in expression levels of genes: pectin synthesis (UDP-glucuronate 4-epimerase – GAE, galacturonosyltransferase 1 – GAUT1, galacturonosyltransferase 7 – GAUT7, rhamnogalacturonan II xylosyltransferase – RGXT, arabinose transferase – ARAD, pectin methyltransferase – PMT) – panel a and degradation (pectin methylesterase 1 – PME1, pectin methylesterase 3 – PME3, pectin methylesterase 5 – PME5, polygalacturonase – PG, pectin lyase – PaL, pectate lyase – PL) – panel b in flax seedlings treated with pathogenic strains of F. oxysporum (F.ox.) at 6, 12, 24, 36 and 48 h after inoculation were presented as relative quantity (RQ) relative to reference gene (actin) in relation to control (C). The data were obtained from real-time RT-PCR analysis. The data represent the mean ± standard deviations from three independent experiments. The significance of the differences between the means was determined using Student’s t test (*P < 0.05, **P < 0.01)
