Floating mucilage-releasing (FMR) accessions have higher water-soluble mucilage sugar contents than wild type.

<p>Amounts of sugars in water-soluble mucilage for wild-type Col-0 (Col-0; dark-grey bar), <i>cesa5-1</i> (black bar), and FMR accessions (light-grey bars). Values are means of four independently extracted samples from two biological repeats. Error bars represent SE (n = 4). Mann-Whitney <i>U</i> test with wild-type Col-0, *<i>P</i><5%, ***<i>P</i><0.1%.</p>
