  • a Six classes of relative expression relative to actin were estimated by RT qPCR: >5000; 1000–5000; 500–1000; 150–500; 50–150; 0–50. Seedlings were cultivated in a growth chamber, adult plants grew in a greenhouse or in a growth chamber. Each estimation is based on 10–20 individuals.

  • b High expression only in plants induced to flowering.
