Effect of AtTCTP-GFP on cell death induced by BAX or tunicamycin. Description of data: Confirmation of AtTCTP-GFP functionality in tunicamycin and BAX experiments. Cell death quantification of tobacco leaf discs transiently over-expressing either AtTCTP or AtTCTP-GFP. A and B show ion leakage calculated relative to time point T0 in response to either expression of BAX induced by 2 μM dexamethasone (DEX) (A), or in response to 2.5 μg · ml-1 tunicamycin (B). Statistical significances were calculated using analysis of variance (P < 0.05) and are indicated as follows: for A: a indicates BAX over-expression (BAX) vs. over-expression of both BAX and AtTCTP (AtTCTP + BAX), b indicates BAX over-expression (BAX) vs. over-expression of both BAX and AtTCTP-GFP (AtTCTP-GFP + BAX); for B: a indicates wildtype (wt) vs. AtTCTP over-expression (AtTCTP); b indicates wildtype (wt) vs. over-expression of AtTCTP-GFP (AtTCTP-GFP).
