Effect of emf2-10 and clf-50 mutations on rosette leaf number

GenotypeShort daysLong days
Wild type (Ws)16.6±0.38.0±0.1

  • The average rosette leaf number at flowering is shown, together with the s.e.m. (n=20). Rosette leaf number is inversely correlated with flowering time, so that early flowering lines have fewer leaves. The wild type included for comparison is Ws ecotype, the progenitor background in which both the clf-50 and emf2-10 alleles were isolated.
