Expression of AqFIE and AqEMF2 in VIGS-treated floral organs. A. Expression of AqFIE and AqEMF2 in AqANS-silenced control sepals (C1-C4), and AqFIE- (F2-F6) and AqEMF3- (E1-E4s/p) treated first whorl organs. AqFIE is down-regulated in all of the AqFIE-treated sepals. Likewise, AqEMF2 is down-regulated in AqEMF2-treated first whorl organs. Unlike the pattern in leaves, AqEMF2 is not down-regulated in AqFIE-treated sepals. B. Expression of AqFIE and AqEMF2 in AqANS-silenced control petals (C1-C4), and AqFIE- (F1-F6) and AqEMF2- (E1 and E2) treated petals. AqFIE is down-regulated in all of the AqFIE-treated petals while AqEMF2 is down-regulated in E1 and also in F3.
