aResults are the mean (±SD) of two replicates of three different samples. All data are expressed as μg g−1 F.W.
bAsterisks show the significant differences between treated plants (T1, T2, T3, and T4) and control plants (Control) at the significance levels of 𝑃 < 0 . 0 5 (*), 𝑃 < 0 . 0 1 (**), and 𝑃 < 0 . 0 0 1 (***).
