Comparison of transcript levels between barley and maize CEL gene orthologues
Barley orthologue Barley tissue series Barley stem series Sub-family Maize MPSS Maize stem series Maize orthologue
HvCEL1 mostly vegetative tissues elevated all tissues, peak in mature zone of elongating internode GH9A all tissues except ovary, pollen and tassel high all stem tissues ZmCEL14
HvCEL3 most tissues, not embryo elevated all tissues, peak in mature zone of elongating internode GH9B clade B1 high, all tissues except pollen all vascular bundle tissues ZmCEL11
HvCEL5 high transcript levels in all tissues high in all stem tissues, peak early elongating internode and mature zone elongating GH9A high most tissues except ovary and pollen elongating internode tissues ZmCEL12
HvCEL10 vegetative tissues only elevated early elongating internode and mature zone elongating internode GH9B clade B3 all tissues except ovary, embryo, endosperm, pollen vascular bundles and all elongating tissues ZmCEL3
HvCEL14 vegetative tissues only elevated mature zone of elongating internode GH9B clade B3 vegetative tissues only not analysed ZmCEL25/26
HvCE6 floral tissues and developing grain, low root tip early elongating internode and post flowering GH9A meristem and ovary, also low vegetative, embryo, endosperm low mature zone elongating vascular bundles ZmCEL7

On the left is a summary of transcript in the tissue developmental series and the stem series for selected barley genes, which are compared with orthologous maize genes on the right of the table showing transcript from MPSS data and a maize stem series.
