Additional file 23: Figure S23. of OsLG3 contributing to rice grain length and yield was mined by Ho-LAMap

Overexpression of OsLG3 in NIP has large effect on grain length and cell number. (a) The mature rice grain images of NIP (left) and over-expression lines (right), OE-3, OE-4, and OE-5, respectively. The scanning electron microscope images are the outer glume epidermal cells of the lemma from the spikelet hulls of NIP (left) and over-expression plant (right) before anthesis, respectively. Scale bars, 5.0 mm (white line) and 300 μm (yellow line), respectively. (b) Grain length. (c–e) Cell length of outer epidermal cells in the longitudinal direction in a (n = 12). (f–h) Total cell number of outer epidermal cells in the longitudinal direction (n = 12). All phenotypic data in b–h were measured from plants grown with 15 × 20 cm spacing in paddies under normal cultivation conditions. All data represent means ± SEM. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, Student’s t test. (PDF 107 kb)
