Morphological analysis of 35S::PeMADS5 transgenic Arabidopsis. Light micrographs of Wild-type Arabidopsis Col-0 (ad) and 35S::PeMADS5 transgenic plants (#2: E to H; #10: I to L). a Wild-type Arabidopsis Col-0 inflorescence. b Side view and (c) top view of a wild-type Arabidopsis Col-0 flower at anthesis. d A wild-type Arabidopsis matured fruit. e 35S::PeMADS5 #2 (i) 35S::PeMADS5 #10 inflorescences. f Side view and (g) top view of a 35S::PeMADS5 #2 flower at anthesis. Note the extra petal indicated with an arrow. j Side view and (k) top view of a 35S::PeMADS5 #10 flower at anthesis. Note the sepals with leaf-like characteristics and did not completely enclose the inner developing organs. Both 35S::PeMADS5 #2 (h) and #10 (l) matured fruits have attached petals denoted with arrows. Relative expression levels of different flowering time genes (SVP, AGL24, SOC1, FT, CO, AP1 and SEP3) in both leaves (m) and flowers (n) as determined by qRT-PCR, with the Actin 2 gene as an internal control. Error bars on each column indicated from three replicates. The * indicates Significant difference at P ≤ 0.05 compared with the wild-type by Student’s test, and ** means the difference at P ≤ 0.01 with wild-type
