Effect of drought on the saponarin content and related gene expression of young barley seedlings. (a) Expression levels of HvCHS1, HvCHI, and HvOGT1. Fifteen-d-old barley plants grown at 23°C under long day (LD) conditions were subjected to dehydration conditions for 1 or 2 d, and the expression levels of HvCHS1, HvCHI, and HvOGT1 in each sample were analyzed using RT–qPCR. The expression levels of each gene at Day 0 were set to 1. Values and error bars indicate mean ± SEM values (n = 3). Asterisks indicate significant differences, when compared to the expression level at Day 0 (Student’s t-test, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01). n.s., not significant. (b) Saponarin content of drought-stressed barley seedlings. The accumulation of saponarin was determined by UHPLC analysis
