Allele-specific transcript ratio of ZmNAC1 in hybrids and parents (cDNA-RT PCR)
87-1 Zong3 P Allelic ratio 87-1: Zong3 Zong3/87-1 H Allelic ratio 87-1: Zong3
87-1 allele Zong3allele

The allelic transcript ratios (87-1: Zong3) of parents and hybrids were compared with an expected ratio indicating an equal allelic expression of 1.0. The mean, standard error (in parenthesis), and P values in the t test were based on three biological replicates. * P < 0.05.
