Flower structure of wild-type, mug1 mug2, and mug7 mug8 in A. thaliana.

(A–C) Bright-field micrographs of dissected flowers shown of (A) wild-type, (B) mug1 mug2, and (C) mug7 mug8. Scale = 0.5 mm. (D–F) SEM micrographs of dissected flowers of (D) wild-type, (E) mug1 mug2, and (F) mug7 mug8. Scale = 0.5 mm. (G–I) SEM micrographs of dissected flowers at higher magnification showing the stigma papillae of (G) wild-type, (H) mug1 mug2, and (I) mug7 mug8. Scale = 100 µm. (J–L) SEM micrographs of dissected flowers at higher magnification showing one anther and pollen of (J) wild-type, (K) mug1 mug2, and (L) mug7 mug8. Scale = 50 µm.
