Fold induction of ZmARF genes response to exogenous auxin stimuli. For maize inbred line B73, 8-day-old primary roots were harvested after0, 1, 2 and 3 hours of incubation in 5 μM αNAA and distilled water. Relative mRNA abundance of each gene was normalized with β-Actin gene, with the exception of ZmARF31 (No signal detected in this tissue). Paired t-test was used to determine the significance of differences of relative mRNA abundance between auxin treatment and water control at each time point, and fold induction with significant difference was listed at the top of column.
