Table II. Pyrosequencing, contig assembly, AC and FDR tests, and HCA statistics

The FA synthesis enzymes investigated were the 20 plastidial enzymes described in Fig. 3. All ER proteins (excluding oleosins and caleosins) described in Fig. 3 were considered for statistics. HCA results detail the distribution of the DECs involved in fatty acid synthesis (cluster names and numbers of DEC per cluster).
