Variability of translation states in wild-type plants under controlled growth conditions. Translation state (TL) values and transcript levels (TC) were collected from 12 bona fide identical biological replicates of wild-type seedlings grown under standard growth conditions. (A) Line histogram showing the distribution of the standard deviations (SD) of the translation state (TL). The 20% of mRNAs with the highest standard deviation (>0.49) are highlighted in red to the right of the vertical line. The inset shows the distribution of the TL values as a boxplot. (B) Line histogram showing the distribution of standard deviations for total transcript levels. The 20% of mRNAs with the highest standard deviation (>0.375) are highlighted in red to the right of the vertical line. The inset shows the distribution of total transcript levels as a boxplot. (C) GO analysis of mRNAs with highly variable translation state using the DAVID (Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery) functional annotation tool. (D) GO analysis of mRNAs with highly variable transcript levels.
