Copy number was determined by DNA gel-blot analysis ofHindIII-digested DNA probed with the NptII probe.

    • F0-a NA, Not applicable because plants did not survive transplantation.

    • F0-b +, Present.

    • F0-c ND, Not determined.

    • F0-d *, Early phenotype not determined.

    • F0-e –, Not present.

    • F0-f Nonclonal plants from “one” callus.
