Figure 7.

A peroxidase inhibitor-treatment (SHAM) resulted in a delay in pod shatter (A), a lower lignin content of siliques S2 (B), and lower peroxidase activity (C) when compared to WT (D). Total lignin content of siliques S2 in plants treated with various concentration of SHAM (Student t-test p < 0.001, n = 6) (B). Transversal sections of siliques of plants treated with 1000 μM SHAM (C) and WT (D) stained in situ by guaiacol/hydrogen peroxide for peroxidase activity (DZ = dehiscence zone, enb = endocarp b, vb = vascular bundle).
