Pairwise correlations of OsGLP gene expression ratios in silenced transgenic lines (n = 19)

Using band intensity ratios for the T0 and T1 plants, correlation tests of all pairwise combinations of OsGLP genes were computed using the SAS program PROC CORR. r2 values are reported in the matrices, and significant values are indicated: * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.0001. Gene expression ratios refer to transgenic gel band intensity-to-wild-type gel band intensity, normalized with the gel band intensity of the internal control EF1-α.
