Table 1. CUS1 and cutinsomes labeling density during tomato fruit development.

Labeling density is expressed as the number of gold particles per micrometers squared. Data are presented as means ± se. −, No labeling or very disperse gold particles. Controls without primary antibodies showed label density <0.15.
