Table I. Number of trichomes and trichome branches on the leaf surface of Arabidopsis wild-type and ABCG12pro:AtLtpI-4 plants

Trichomes were counted for 12 leaves (three leaves of four plants each). The absolute number of trichomes and trichome branch points on the upper leaf surface of Arabidopsis wild-type plants and the transgenic lines 1, 4, and 11 were counted using a Leica MZ6 microscope. The percentages of zero, one, and two trichome branch points were calculated from the total number of trichomes. Modified from Saupe (2014).
