Fig. 1. Exogenous GA treatment affects plant growth and the expression pattern of terpenoid biosynthesis-related genes. (A) GA treatment enhances primary and secondary growth of shoot and storage roots, respectively. One-year-old P. ginseng plants were treated with DMSO as a mock control or 10 μM GA3 once a week for 8 weeks. Scale bar = 2 cm. (B, C) Measurements of shoot length (B) and root grith (C). Error bars represent the standard error (n > 18). Different lowercase letters indicate statistically significant differences (P < 0.05; one-way ANOVA, followed by Tukey’s multiple range test). (D) Enrichment plot for the terpenoid biosynthesis process and an expression heatmap of 19 genes related to this pathway (FDR = 0.0) were obtained from the RNA-seq data of the roots of GA3-treated P. ginseng (Hong et al. 2021)
