Additional file 7: of Isoprenoid biosynthesis in dandelion latex is enhanced by the overexpression of three key enzymes involved in the mevalonate pathway

Root morphology and weight of 12-week-old wild-type and transgenic T. brevicorniculatum plants. A: Cleaned roots were harvested and one representative plant from each line was photographed. Scale bar: 10 cm. B: Mean root fresh weight and C: mean root dry weight of harvested roots. Bars represent standard errors (n = three plants; asterisks indicate n = two plants). No significant differences at p < 0.05 were detected between wild-type (Wt) plants and transgenic lines using the Mann-Whitney U test. (TIFF 3459 kb)
