Plants hemizygous for each transgenic locus were outcrossed withb1 tester and the no. of colored kernels determined.
↵F4-a The direction of the cross that generated the ears that were scored is indicated as follows: ×b1, the BB2100 stock was crossed by b1 stock pollen; b1×, the reciprocal cross in which BB2100 pollen was placed on b1 ears.
↵F4-b The average of the proportion of colored kernels on each ear is given.
↵F4-c The no. of ears that were counted and used to determine the mean.
↵F4-d The proportion of colored kernels on the ears with the highest and lowest percentages in the sample.
↵F4-e The probability obtained by the ANOVA method that the difference between the outcross by b1 pollen (×b1) and the outcross tob1 ears (b1×) is due to chance variation.
