Sugar content changes in the leaves in response to diurnal rhythms and in the mature storage roots (>S18) of wild-type and Lc transgenic lines.
(A–C) Changes in the content of fructose (A), glucose (B) and sucrose (C) at 6:00, 12:00, 18:00 and 24:00. WT, wild type; Lc1–3, independent Lc transgenic lines. (D) The content of individual sugars in the mature storage roots. Error bars represent the SE of three independent replicates. The asterisks indicate a significant difference compared to the WT at *P < 0.05 or **P < 0.01 (t-test).
