As described in the text, both barley and maize genes showed several different transcript patterns.

Barley genes were categorised into groups according to co-transcription patterns as indicated on the left hand side of the table and described in the text. On the right side of the table are the maize orthologues and their subjective groupings as described in the text. The maize orthologues of HvCEL4 and HvCEL8 could not be exactly determined, ZmCEL1 or ZmCEL2 are their closest orthologues as determined by phylogenetic analysis (Figure 1).

+++ high relative transcript levels.

++ moderate relative transcript levels.

+ low relative transcript levels.

- no transcript detected.

N/A not analysed.

N/O no orthologue.
