Values within columns followed by the same letter are not significantly different at 0.05 level of probability (Duncan’s multiple range test).

1Mean and standard deviation (SD) for F2 gamma-T content and number of F2 individuals per genotypic class (n).

Genotypic means for F2 gamma-tocopherol (gamma-T) content (% of the total tocopherols) in allelic combinations at epistatically interacting marker loci. A = homozygous with respect to the allele derived from IAST-1, B = homozygous with respect to the allele derived from nmsT2100, H = heterozygous.
