Table 1 Distribution of cells according to cell length (μm) 48 h after treatment with cellulose biosynthesis inhibitors, inhibitors of calcium transport and auxins

From: Auxin protects Arabidopsis thaliana cell suspension cultures from programmed cell death induced by the cellulose biosynthesis inhibitors thaxtomin A and isoxaben

  1. aCells stained with trypan blue were visualized by light microscopy and photographed. Cell dimensions were measured using Fiji software [37] for 300 cells per condition. Results show the mean percentage of cells in each category of length from 3 replicates ± SD. (*) indicates statistically significant difference with control in each category (t-test followed by Holm-Šídák method, p < 0.05)
