Pericarp cell wall components of WT and transgenic fruits at the RR stage. (A) Cellulose content (micrograms per milligram alcohol-insoluble residue [AIR]) in the cell walls of pericarp tissues. (B) Uronic acid (UA) content in sequentially extracted pectin fractions of the pericarp cell wall materials (CWMs). (C) Noncellulosic neutral sugar content in the trifluoroacetic acid (TFA)-soluble wall fractions (mole percent of total wall neutral sugars). The error bars represent three measurements from each AIR or CWM sample. Significance was calculated using the Student’s t test. Asterisks indicate statistically significant differences (P <0.005** or P <0.05*).
