Morphological analysis of seed defects in siliques of wild type, p5cs2/P5CS2 and p5cs1 p5cs2/P5CS2 plants. The percentage of aberrant versus normal seeds was scored in wild type, p5cs2/P5CS2 heterozygous and p5cs1 p5cs2/P5CS2 mutants. While siliques from heterozygous p5cs2 mutant (A and B, middle) present ~25% of aberrant seeds (white arrowheads) the percentage of seed abortion of p5cs1 p5cs2/P5CS2 siliques (A and B, right) is indistinguishable from wild type (A and B, left). Details, at higher magnification, of some of the aberrant seeds of figure B (middle) are shown in the insets. Values represent the means of four independent experiments ± SE.
