  1. Control is the nontransgenic plant segregated from the 35S::GhmiR157 transgenic lines in cotton. OV12 and OV38 are 35S::GhmiR157 transgenic lines in cotton. Values are shown as the mean ± standard deviation. In each row, values with different superscipt letters are significantly different based on Tukey’s multiple comparison test (P < 0.05)
