Growth differences of transgenic plants are not correlated with CO2assimilation rates. Differences (mean ± SE, n ≥ 4) in photosynthesis rates between transgenic lines (irSIPK,irWIPK, irLOX3, oeNahG, SxN) compared to competing wild type (WT) plants (calculated as described in Figure 4A). Rosette leaves were OS-elicited as described in Figure 4. Photosynthesis rate was measured at the youngest treated rosette leaf 1 day after the last treatment. The minimum adequate model is represented through small letters (a, b, c; ANOVA, F2,56 = 15.70, p < 0.001).
