Relative expression levels of ATHB2, ATHB5 and At2g45210 are high in seeds. Relative expression levels of the RGL2 target genes ATHB2, ATHB5 and At2g45210 in various tissues of wild type plants as determined by qRT-PCR, relative to Tubulin (TUB), compared to the expression in rosette leaves (A). All three genes appear to be highly expressed in seed tissues, suggesting a role in the regulation of seed/embryo development or maturation. In addition, At2g454210 is highly expressed in flowers, suggesting additional functions in flower development. (B-D) Expression levels of ATHB2, ATHB5 and At2g45210 in dry seeds of respective T-DNA insertion lines. RQ = relative quantity of transcripts.
