Luciferase activity and DNA methylation analysis of the 35S CaMV promoter in 10 day-old seedlings (d.o.s). a Schematic representation of the constructs used to transform Arabidopsis. b Luciferase imaging in 10 d.o.s. of T2 generation measured as counts per seconds (cps). c Box plot showing luciferase activity measures, represented as cps per line. *** represents highly significant differences (p < 0.001) according to Student’s test. d DNA methylation quantification of CG (red bars), CHG (blue bars) and CHH (green bars) cytosine contexts. e Luciferase activity ± standard deviation versus total DNA methylation plot for 10 d.o.s. % of DNA methylation was calculated as (number of methylated C residues in each context (CG, CHG or CHH)/total number of C residues in that context) * 100. % of total DNA methylation was calculated as (number of methylated C residues/total number of C residues) * 100.
