Additional file 2: Figure S1. Phytoliths in Brachypodium distachyon wild type and Bdlsi1-1 mutant. Phytoliths remaining after microwave-assisted acid digestion of plant material (AIR) were recovered from filters, labelled with silica-specific PDMPO dye and observed by light and fluorescence microscopy. Leaves (A, B, C), stems (D, E) and spikelets (F, G) of wild type plants showed high density of silicified structures that varied in the intensity of PDMPO-labelling. In contrast, the leaves (H, I, J), stems (K, L, M) and spikelets (N, O, P) of the mutant plants contained a substantially lower amount of phytoliths. Scale bars: 100 µm.
