Phenotype of 10-week-old soil-grown 35S:CKX2 transgenic B. napus lines. a Growth habit of plants. Lateral buds in the leaf axils of transgenic plants developed two to three small leaves during early vegetative development (indicated by red arrows). (b) Enhanced root system of 35S:CKX2 transgenic plants compared to wild type. (c) Plant height of transgenic lines and wild type at the onset of flowering. (n = 20). d Fresh weight of 35S:CKX2 transgenic shoots compared to wild type. (n = 10). (e) Total seed yield, and (f) 100-seed weight of transgenic plants compared to wild type. (n = 15–18). Data were obtained from soil-grown plants after 8 weeks (c) or 12 weeks (d) of cultivation in a greenhouse. Data in (c-f) represent mean values ± SD. The statistical significance of differences compared to wild type was calculated using two-tailed Student’s t-test. ***, p < 0.001
