Figure 1: Soluble sugar content during caryopsis development. Starch and sugar content of the developing wheat caryopsis. Starch and sugar were measured by HPLC in dried whole caryopses; the same batch of biomaterial used for the microarray analysis. Values represent the percentage of each sugar in caryopsis tissue expressed as a percent dry weight (% DWT) of caryopsis tissue. Values are the mean ± Standard Error of the Mean (SEM) of 3-4 independent measurements of 3 biological replicates per time-point. The starch data are the mean of 2–5 biological replicates per time-point.
