Table 1 A comparison between; genes shown to be expressed in leaf and/or root tissue of Chinese Spring (CS) (Bottley et al, 2006), the presence or absence of homoeologue silencing in the cultivar Florida (Bottley et al, 2008) and the expression of the same genes in callus tissue.

From: Homoeologous gene silencing in tissue cultured wheat callus
