Phenotype of 35S:ABF3 plants. (A) Transpiration rate of leaves from 35S:ABF3, control, and wild-type plants. Leaves from 4-week-old plants were excised and left at room temperature for one day and the percentage of leaf weight remaining was measured (n = 5). For each measurement, five leaves were pooled. Error bars indicate standard deviation. (B, C) Growth retardation of 35S:ABF3 plants. Three-day-old seedlings were transplanted to fresh MS plates and fresh weight was measured after 1 (B) (n = 6) or 4 weeks (C) (n = 5) of growth. For each measurement, eight (B) or 5 (C) seedlings were pooled. Error bars indicate standard deviation.
