Table 1 Measurements of lobes of fully expanded white flowers from TRV chs infected and TRV chs/la-1 infected plants

From: Silencing of PhLA, a CIN-TCP gene, causes defected petal conical epidermal cell formation and results in reflexed corolla lobes in petunia

  n Lobe width (W) (mm)** Distance between sinuses (D) (mm)** Lobe length (L) (mm)** W/L D/L *** Area (mm2)
TRV chs 125 29.4 ± 2.2 24.2 ± 1.3 14.4 ± 1.3 2.0 ± 0.1 1.7 ± 0.2 43.6 ± 0.3
TRV chs/la-1 125 31.1 ± 1.6 22.7 ± 2.1 16.2 ± 2.1 1.9 ± 0.2 1.4 ± 0.2 43.1 ± 0.3
  1. Each data point is the mean (± SD). The statistic significances were examined using student t test. The statistic significances of measurements between these two groups are indicated by number of stars. A diagram showing the measured regions is in Additional file 2: Fig.  S2
  2. n, number of lobes; **: p-value < 0.005; ***: p-value < 0.0005; W, lobe width; D, distance between sinuses; L, lobe length
