Malondialdehyde (MDA) derived from lipid peroxidation in WT and angustifolia mutant background under control and stress conditions
Genotypes MDA (nmol/mg FW)
Control Drought stress
WT 21.8 ± 2.5 (n = 16) a   70.5 ± 5.3 (n = 16) b
an-t1 20.5 ± 1.8 (n = 22) a   32.6 ± 2.5 (n = 22) c
an-1* 18.9 ± 2.2 (n = 16) a   35.2 ± 3.8 (n = 16) c

The numbers in the parentheses indicate the number of samples analyzed. Mean values with different letters are significantly different from each other, and mean values with the same letter in the group are not significantly different (P <0.05). * an-1 mutant = a gift from the Tsukaya lab. Drought stress was imposed by withholding watering for one week. FW = fresh weight.
