Effect of GA on penetrance of the pickle phenotype in pkl-1 ga1-3 seedlings. For each treatment, 72 seeds were incubated at 22°C in continuous light (60 μE m−2 s−1) on synthetic media (4) containing GA4 at the indicated concentrations. Germination and the pickle phenotype were scored at 10 days. Expression of the pickle phenotype was calculated as a percentage of total seeds and as a percentage of seeds that germinated.
