Relative gene expression of selected genes during pollen pistil-interaction. Genes are listed by their probe set ID of the Affymetrix Citrus GeneChip and by their tentatively assigned name. A: cit.7568 (F-box); B: cit.11563 (Asp-rich protein gene); C: cit.5456 (Asp-rich protein gene); D: cit.5776 (Asp-rich protein gene). Styles with stigmas were sampled from 0 (non-pollinated flowers) to 8 DAP. Control samples of non-pollinated flowers, collected at 1, 3 and 6 DAP, were added to the time course analysis to determine if the genes were induced by self-pollination. Error bars indicate standard deviations from the mean.
